From the makers of Coast, Landscape Mysteries embarks on a series of journeys in which Professor Aubrey Manning tries to solve mysteries hidden in the landscape of the British Isles. Unpicking clues in the geology, natural history and archaeology, Aubrey reveals how the land has come to look the way it does. In Search of Irish Gold In Search of Irish Gold sees presenter Aubrey Manning travel to Ireland in search of a Celtic Eldorado, a secret source of Bronze Age gold, buried more than 3,000 years ago. Today s Irish landscape shows little sign of gold, so where did these prehistoric metalworkers find it? Watch in awe as clues in the landscape help Aubrey work out if and where deposits still exist. Figures in the Chalk Figures in the Chalk sees Aubrey travel to the Chalk Hills of England to unravel the origins of the enigmatic chalk figures such as the Long Man of Wilmington and the Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset. The age of these chalk figures has never been fully established and Aubrey, alongside a team of archaeologists from Reading University, come up with a remarkable new and exciting discovery. The landscape around us is part of our life; it affects so much that we do and feel. Amazing forces have acted to shape our landscapes; they began millions of years back and continue to this day. Join me in a search for clues which reveal their influences on our past, present and future.- Aubrey Manning
