A popular television series, which showcases the beauty and diversity of the county and is watched by millions of viewers, returns to our screens later this month.

The third series of Robson Green’s Tales from Northumberland will be aired on ITV, with the first episode scheduled for Monday, February 29.

The programme captures the Hexham-born star as he immerses himself in the cultures and traditions of The Secret Kingdom.

The theme of the third series is journeys and Robson, 51, will take on various ones across the region.

As part of filming for the latest instalment, Robson went fell running in the Cheviots and sailed a tall ship at Blyth, among other things.

Robson said: “It’s always great to do a third series of anything and with this, we are just discovering more hidden gems in Northumberland.

“But really, this new series is about journeys, whether it be a journey on land or in the air; we have a journey called All At Sea which discovers our seafaring heritage.

“The series is just more of a great celebration of an area that is beautiful, idyllic and still one of the last, great, isolated, remote wildernesses that is on the planet and a place that I am still very proud to call home.”
