Britain By Jove collects together all 4
episodes of the famous comedy travelogue produced by British Pathe in the 1960s
to promote holidays in Great Britain. The shows were
presented by much loved ventriloquist Ray Alan and his celebrated companion Lord
Charles and filmed in full colour.
Lord Charles sets the tone with a rousing patriotic speech that "We are
living in a touring paradise " before embarking on a whistlestop tour of the
whole country - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - with his
erstwhile chauffeur Cavendish played by Roddy Maude-Roxby.
Lord Charles casts his beady eye over and passes his inimitable comments on
places such as :- Cambridge, Newmarket, Norfolk Broads, Burnham Thorpe,
Chatsworth House, North Yorkshire Moors, Robin Hood's Bay, Newcastle, Inverness,
Edinburgh, the Highlands (Lochs, Whiskey Distillery, Birdwatching, Angling and
Golfing), Antrim and Londonderry in Northern Ireland, The Giant's Causeway, The
English Lakes, Tenby and Portmeirion in Wales, Stratford-on-Avon, Bath, Land's
End, Torquay, Boscastle, Mousehole, Plymouth Hoe, Lulworth Cove, London and The
Thames (Hampton Court, St.Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly, Hyde
Park and The Tower Of London), Oxford, Henley, Cliveden House, Windsor and The
Isle Of Man.
