(VIDEO) Land of Hope and Glory: British Country Life

Here is the 2016 BBC documentary entitled, Land of Hope and Glory: British Country Life.

For almost 120 years, Country Life magazine has been aspiring to capture the elusive soul of the British countryside, from muddy fields to stately homes. Jane Treays spent a year filming with the magazine, exploring the lives of those who have been bred into the land, inherited it or have simply bought into its dreams.

From a “girl in pearls” shoot in Yorkshire to a historic mansion in Dorset, via Lindisfarne Castle and a family farm in Somerset, this series captures the glory and eccentricity of the men and women who live the rural life.

So, what does this program have to do with royalty?  Well, nothing, really.  I enjoyed the documentary so I thought I would share it with all of you.
