Abroad In Britain - Salisbury Cathedral

Jonathan Meades did a documentary in 1990 for BBC2 called "Abroad In Britain." In the series, he sets out to take a look at various places in Great Britain. "Further Abroad" followed in 1994, and "Even Further Abroad" in 1996. In 2005, he reprized the series with "Abroad Again In Britain," and "Abroad Again," in 2007.

Below is the 2005 visit to Salisbury Cathedral. It is presented in six parts. I've searched for DVDs of the series on Amazon, but sadly found none. If you go to UK Amazon, however, there is a DVD called, "The Jonathan Meades Collection" that has samplings from some of the series. This is a UK dvd, not playable on US only DVD players.
