Intrepid British travel host Simon Reeve has two new series being produced, despite being restricted by UK lockdown.
Cornwall With Simon Reeve is an exploration of the UK county as it emerged from first lockdown, investigating what the future holds for one of Britain’s favourite tourist destinations. Reeve, who lives in Devon, explores the natural beauty of neighbouring Cornwall, its coastal locations and moorland.
The second series, Incredible Journeys With Simon Reeve, takes a look back at some of the most remote destinations he has visited, from arctic glaciers to tropical reefs, from the forests of Borneo to the deserts of central Asia.
Simon Reeve says: “Events this year have knocked us all for six, and travelling the planet has become a bit tricky. So in these two series we thought it was a good time for me to look back, and also have a look at life closer to home.
“Travelling around Cornwall I met so many fantastic characters who were warm and welcoming, talked with incredible honesty, and challenged my stereotypes of the county and really made me think.
“In Incredible Journeys I wanted to reflect on the joy of travel, show viewers some of the most inspiring people I’ve met, and share what I’ve learnt about the challenges and solutions for our incredible planet. The pandemic has put a stop to many of our travels, but eventually the pandemic will pass, and we will start travelling again. I can’t wait.”
Reeve’s documentaries have frequently screened in Australia on SBS.
