Join Patricia on a visual feast featuring the stunning landscapes of Cumbria and a close up look at the remarkable art created by one of the greatest children’s illustrators in the world. Delve into Potter’s journal that she began writing at only 15 and discover the fascinating code she developed – it was not cracked until 8 years after her death!  And explore the farming legacy Beatrix left behind, enabling many Cumbrian farmers to continue making a living.

Authored with passion, perhaps even obsession, this charming and fascinating programme tells the definitive and most comprehensive story of Beatrix Potter; a practical, formidable, remarkable woman.

This documentary also ties into the release of a previously unseen story, The Tale Of Kitty-In-Boots, recently published. The story was written just before the outbreak of the First World War but never published in Potter’s lifetime.
