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.
