Beautiful Britain is a registered charity. BB, as it is better known, was formed in 2002 by the journalist Graham Hawkins and his actress wife, Selena Tyrone.


BB has three areas of operations. Its first objective is to clean up Britain. BB argues that there is more waste ground and rubbish dumps in Britain than parks and playgrounds for children. We don’t need so many areas for rubbish. The problem is that we are not very organised at getting rid of rubbish and the government doesn’t like to spend money on cutting down on rubbish. BB hopes to clean up these rubbish areas and turn them into clean land for families and children.


Its second objective is to provide homes for the many dogs and cats that live on the streets. BB provides a service that takes pets off the streets, cleans them, feeds them and finds them new owners in new homes. Last year, 700 dogs and 500 cats were given new homes. The hardest time is always just after Christmas and the New Year. Tom Naylor of BB says ‘Many people buy little dogs or cats as presents and then get bored or tired of looking after them. It’s our job to make sure they are not lost on the streets.’


BB’s third objective is in education. Members of BB travel around schools in England giving workshops and seminars to both teachers and children. Last year BB visited 700 schools and gave 1,200 workshops. This means that about 25,000 children found out how to make Britain a cleaner place in 20 years’ time.


Graham Hawkins and Selena Tyrone are very sociable people. They are also very media-friendly. They can always be seen on chat shows and current affairs programmes, talking about the environment. BB also makes its own documentaries about the environment. Last March BB signed a contract with the Geography Channel to produce five nature
