This TV show map of the UK by an American is excellent

Ask most Americans about Wernham Hogg and you'd simply get a confused look. Gavin and Stacey? Never heard of them.

But there are a few people across the pond, for whom the mention of these would elicit a nod of recognition and a warm smile - one of those being graphic designer Tim Ritz, an Anglophile who was asked so often by his wife where particular places in the UK were, that he decided to create a map, based on the locations of its famous TV shows.

It includes a host of British entertainment classics, with a special breakout section for London's many great shows. Fear not, Byker Grove is on there too. You can buy a print for just $15 (£10) by heading here.

As if their fictional locations weren't enough, he's even included a few nice notes on where the shows are actually filmed.

Anyone up for a road trip to visit the lot?
