The Cotswolds with Pam Ayres: Series Premiere (S1EP1 Channel 5 Fri 17 Sep 2021)



The series begins in the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water. Pam soaks up the scenery that attracts thousands of tourists every year – along with a Cotswold cream tea – before visiting Andy Wallington’s antique shop, followed by a world-famous perfumery that’s made scents for the Queen.

Channel 5 factual commissioning editor Lucy Willis said: “Pam Ayres’ cheeky sense of humour makes her a wonderful guide through one of the loveliest parts of Britain”.

Airdate: Fri 17 Sep 2021 at 20:00 on Channel 5

Season 1 Episode 1

The poet sets off on a journey around the region that takes in parts of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire. 

In each episode, Pam will go beyond the picture postcard images and use her local knowledge to reveal both the familiar and the not so familiar gems of one of Britain’s most beautiful areas.

From grand country estates to time-honoured businesses, Pam’s fascinating journey will uncover some of the hidden treasures and little-known facts about the Cotswolds and the people who, like her, love to call it their home.
