Sky 3D offers aerial view of Britain and Ireland
Sky has launched a new 3D documentary that gives an aerial view of the UK and Ireland, with commentary from a host of stars.
Britain & Ireland from the Sky is scheduled to run for eight episodes, with the next one set to hit the air on Sky 3D at 18:00 BST tomorrow (June 11th 2011).
The production features personal stories and narration from the likes of Michael Sheen, James Nesbitt and Ashley Jensen.
Shots of the British and Irish landscape, including spots in Cornwall, Ben Bulben in Ireland and Portmeirion in Wales, were recorded from heights of between five and 5,000 ft.
John Cassy, channel director of Sky 3D, insisted the "breathtaking" vistas will jump out at the viewer and grab their attention.
"For the first time, 3D viewers can see the landscapes of these beautiful islands from a unique aerial perspective and learn of previously-untold personal stories," he added.
Last month, another Sky 3D documentary - Sir David Attenborough's Flying Monsters - picked up the Bafta for best specialist factual programme.
It is the first 3D show to be honoured at the ceremony.
