Reef Television has been commissioned to produce a new four-part series for Channel 4 exploring Britain’s airfields, presented by amateur pilot Arthur Williams.
In Flying High with Arthur Williams (W/T) the former Royal Marine will take to the skies in his very own Piper J3 Cub aeroplane to visit the fascinating network of airfields sited right across the UK, unearthing the rich history and active communities behind them. His journeys will take in breath-taking views of the country at large, whilst in his stop-downs he’ll meet the extraordinary characters involved in airfield life, go for a spin in planes new and old and celebrate our national passion for flying. The 4 x 60’ series was commissioned for Channel 4 by Lizi Wootton, commissioning editor, features. The executive producer will be Reef’s head of factual Ben Weston, with Owen Rodd as series editor.
