The Thames from Reading to Teddington Lock 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. Together with its companion programme, ‘The Thames Above Reading’ this DVD provides the only comprehensive guide to the locked navigation on the Thames. A definite ‘must’ for casual viewer and waterway enthusiast alike! The programme is new for 2011. (Run Length 65 mins)
