This series was Nicholas Crane's first outing on BBC television. It told the story of the creation and influence of maps which have changed our experience of the British isles. I made two episodes: 'Smith' about the man who first created a map of Britain's geology, and 'Hotine' about the WWI veteran who masterminded the creation of the modern Ordnance Survey maps.
