Scarlet Hotel on BBC Programme Alexander Armstrong's Very British Holiday
Tuesday, 03 November 2009
After months of filming, Alexander Armstrong’s Very British Holiday, a documentary about tourism in Britain during the recession, is going to be on our screens on the 8th November.
Alexander Armstrong explores the state of the great British holiday. It is widely acknowledged that 2009 is a bumper year for the UK tourist industry, with many consumers tightening their belts and forgoing foreign holidays. Can Britain's destinations cope with the masses, and is the industry prepared for the demands of its guests? Alexander explores life in themed hotels, quaint and quirky B&Bs, family-run holiday parks and unusual attractions.
We are excited and dreading it by turns as we were filmed over several months and are sure we will see all the stages of naïve optimism (of course Scarlet is going to open on time) to haggard despair (2 weeks from opening and how on earth are we going to do it.) Tune in if you want to share our rollercoaster ride. BBC1 10.25pm 8th November.
