Disk 1 The Thames Above Reading. This video captures the delights of the upper reaches in a journey commencing at the river’s official head of navigation, Lechlade in Gloucestershire, and continuing down as far as the approach to Reading, in Berkshire. A distance of some 70 miles, this winding course takes us through many river-side towns and villages full of character and individuality. (Run Length 80 mins)
Disk 2 The Thames Reading to Teddington Lock The Thames from Reading to Teddington is a journey through English heritage. A heritage spawned by the river itself in its various roles as trade route, water supply and defensible line. As we meander along its 60 glorious miles (the road link between the towns is only half that distance) we see some of the world’s most famous cultural and historical landmarks; Windsor Castle, Hampton Court, Eton College, Runnymede and Henley. It has been an inspiration to artist and poet alike, to men of religion and to the Hell Fire Club. (Run Length 65 mins)
