2004 Coast to Coast – original series with AW and Eric Robson
"Very enjoyable viewing for all lovers of Wainwright walks and who wants to know about Wainwright the man. Eric Robson is the perfect companion on the walk. Also enjoyable viewing for those that don't go walking. Really worth it."

2007 Wainwright Country – with Fred Talbot

2007 Wainwright Walks Series 1 – with Julia Bradbury
 "If you're a keen walker, chances are you'll have seen this already. If not, you should. If you're not familiar with the Lakes, it'll make you want to be, and if you are, it's a lovely way to reminisce about where you've already been. And no doubt you'll want to go again! A beautifully produced series, with stunning aerial footage and interesting background information. Recommended."

2008 Wainwright Walks Series 2 – with Julia Bradbury
 "I absolutely love this. Julia Bradbury is a great presenter. The film work is wonderful of fabulous scenery and all enriched with juicy quotes from Wainwright. If you're feeling a bit glum, I find watching these walks a great inducers of happiness. I only wish there were more of them."

2008 Wainwright Walks Box Set (series 1 & 2)
 "There's something about Alfred Wainwright that is just so special that you need to own this set Wainwright Walks: Complete BBC Series 1 & 2 Box Set [DVD] so you can dip in and out of the Lakeland scenery. Best of all if you have walked these fells too it is 'touching base' with a very special time spent in one of the loveliest places in Britain"

2009 Wainwright’s Coast to Coast  - with Julia Bradbury
 "A detailed preview of the many interesting things to see on the route of this walk. The information given is interspersed with aerial views of the track and fantastic scenery. Interviews during the journey make for an absorbing DVD. A good buy that should inspire you to do the walk."
