David Wilson Researcher, Writer, TV Producer and Director
Presented by Nicholas Crane
2 x 30' BBC2, 2004
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.
