Starting tonight at 8pm on ITV, Tales from Northumberland with Robson Green will be aired to the nation. Over eight episodes, Robson travels the length and breadth of our magical landscape by land, sea and air to see things he’s never seen before and discover a side of Northumberland that he never knew. The editorial quality of the programme is second to none. There is some visually stunning aerial and time lapse footage which shows Northumberland in a way you might not expect.

The Farne Islands are possibly the most exciting seabird colony in England with unrivalled views of 23 species, including around 37,000 pairs of puffin.
It's also home to a large grey seal colony, with more than 1,000 pups born every autumn.
Historically, the islands have strong links with Celtic Christianity and St Cuthbert, who lived here in the 7th Century.
