Summary

James Morris challenges the tourist cliches and looks at the impact of human presence and the layers of history in the landscape. He reflects upon issues of identity, exploitation and regeneration; it is a land of beauty and of hardship where - in this post industrial, post rural economy - Tesco and tourism are now the great employers.
