Reef Television has picked up a 24 x 60-minute commission, Britain’s Village of the Year, from Channel 4, which will see Penelope Keith expand on her Hidden Villages series to seek out the country’s finest village.


The series sees Keith visit villages across Britain, from coastal fishing villages to hillside farming communities, and including artist colonies and archetypal ‘chocolate box’ villages we’re so well known for. 


The series will air across both daytime and peak. At the end of the 24 episodes, one of the villages will finally be revealed as the Village of the Year 2017, as selected by “a panel of expert judges”. 


The criteria for scooping the prize include appearance, history and heritage, village events, activities and visitor experience. “This series will shine a spotlight on not just the places, but also the people that make up Britain’s best villages,” adds Richard Farmbrough, CEO of Reef Television.


The prize winning village will receive £10,000 to be used for a “worthwhile community project.”


The commissioning editors at Channel 4 are David Sayer and Lizi Wootton.
