Satellite images of an ordinary day in Britian

August 11, 2008

A new tv series, Britian from Above, started running on the BBC last night.  The show utilizes satellite images to show how Britons travel and communicate.  The images below will be used in the series.

Presenter Andrew Marr takes to the skies by plane, helicopter, microlight and even parachute to give viewers a bird’s eye view of landmarks across the UK.

The programme uses satellite data and the latest computer generated imagery to demonstrate how Britain keeps moving – tracking the planes that enter our airspace, the ships that cross the English Channel and the cars that travel our streets, all in the space of a single day.
