August 2011 - Britain’s First Photo Album for BBC Two Daytime

Reef Television has been commissioned by BBC Two Daytime to produce Britain’s First Photo Album (w/t), a 10 x 30 mins series on the extraordinary achievement of Francis Frith, the pioneer Victorian photographer who embarked upon a colossal project to photograph as much of the United Kingdom as possible during the second half of the 19th century.

The pictures taken by Frith and his staff are viewed as one of the first and most comprehensive pictorial records of the UK, a wonderfully evocative record of our shared history, and equally a present day insight into the social landscape of Britain.

Presented by John Sergeant, each episode will focus on four storylines, all inspired by a Frith photo. John will look to unfold the significance of each image, bringing them to life by meeting present day people who have a connection to these stories from the past. Each show will have a fascinating mix of different stories, taking us on a journey across Britain. Britain’s First Photo Album, is a Reef Television production for BBC Two Daytime. The series was commissioned by Liam Keelan and BBC Executive Producer is Gillian Scothern. For Reef the Series Producer is Stephen Taylor Woodrow and Executive Producer is Richard Farmbrough.
