A panel were asked to identify places from photographs. Devised as a natural successor to Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, the show never really took off. Creator David Attenborough suggests in his autobiography that the pilot (featuring panellists, or "travellers", Osbert Lancaster, John Betjeman and Peter Fleming) was such a disaster that it was never heard of again, though it did in fact run for a few more editions. Nevertheless a troubled production may be indicated by the fact that it managed to get through three hosts in its short run.


Would you believe, no less than the young David Attenborough.
