Countryfile Special 








A Countryfile special has been announced in partnership with BBC Nations which will tell the story of Green Space Dark Skies, a new artistic initiative celebrating nature.

Running from April to September 2022, Green Space Dark Skies is a series of 20 large-scale outdoor artworks in secret locations across the UK’s most outstanding landscapes. The series of mass gatherings is produced by outdoor arts organisation Walk the Plank and part of the UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK festival which is funded and supported by the four governments of the UK. 

Countryfile, the BBC’s flagship rural affairs programme, will follow the project’s culmination in an hour-long special on BBC One and BBC iPlayer which will broadcast later this year. 

Twenty thousand people known as ‘Lumenators’ are being recruited across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to help create the artwork during the events. They will be equipped with smart lights that enable digital choreography to be captured on film. 

The one-off special will highlight the local volunteers, artists, community groups and places involved in the project which aims to celebrate the countryside and connect people to the landscape. 

Rhodri Talfan Davies, BBC Director, Nations, says: “With viewers of Countryfile united in their passion for the outdoors and nature, we’re thrilled to be filming this special programme showcasing the stunning rural landscapes across the UK. Green Space Dark Skies is the first major collaboration between BBC Nations and Countryfile and it promises to be a unique celebration for everyone to enjoy.”
