Maplines by Nicholas Crane

Where would we be without maps? Drawing on journeys and film-shoots ranging from the Hindu Kush to Tibet and from the Pyrenees to the Pennines, writer and broadcaster Nick Crane explores the way maps open the door to geographical enlightenment.

Nick Crane is a geographical writer and broadcaster. He has written a biography of the Renaissance mapmaker Gerard Mercator and travel books describing a 10,000km walk along Europe’s mountain watershed, and a walk along Britain’s prime meridian. He has presented over 70 films for the BBC, including the series Map Man, Great British Journeys, Britannia, Coast and Town.
