Everything from its enormous size to its Art Deco styling and its unmistakable colour make San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge an icon of world design.

Joseph Strauss was the arrogant showman promoting the project, while Charles Ellis and Leon Moisseiff were the mathematical geniuses behind the Golden Gate's cutting-edge design. Since its completion in 1937, it has received a staggering 10 million tourists every year.

No public access allowed. Until now. This series, presented by Sir Tony Robinson, uses the latest drone technology to see our islands in a completely different way. Tony will dispatch flying cameras to the far reaches of the country, swooping into billionaire's private estates, snooping on military manoeuvres and going over no entry signs and barbed wire fences.
