Rambling comedy to hit TV screens
Bookmark and Share
Tonight (July 28th) sees the start of a new sitcom about people who love to go walking.

The Great Outdoors will be screened on BBC 4 and focuses on the lives, loves and adventures of a small walking club.

One of the central aspects of the narrative is how leader of the group Bob is faced with a challenge from newcomer Christine, who, Grough notes, includes a walking GPS among her array of high-tech gadgets.

Those wishing to get such a device to help with their navigation can pick one up from the nearest Go Outdoors store.

A walking GPS can be useful for navigation in places where there is very poor visibility, or where finding a precise point can be difficult, such as a summit on a flat plateau.

One such example is the summit of Kinder Scot, the highest point in Derbyshire, which is marked by a small cairn in the midst of a flat peat bog over 2,000 ft up.
