TV adventurer Simon Reeve will return to screens this autumn and winter with two new travel series on BBC Two.
As one of the nation's favourite destinations, Cornwall with Simon Reeve will see the presenter explore the county as it emerges from lockdown and investigate its future.
Reeve said: “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."
Reeve will showcase the best of Cornwall’s natural splendour, with its stunning coastal locations and inner moorlands.
Incredible Journeys with Simon Reeve will look back at some of the most remarkable and remote destinations the explorer has visited.
From central Asian deserts to arctic glaciers, from tropical reefs to the forests of Borneo, Reeve will reflect on his long and fascinating career of exploration and discovery.
“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.”
Cornwall with Simon Reeve will air on BBC Two in November. Incredible Journeys with Simon Reeve will air on BBC Two in winter 2020/2021.
