This was broadcast on BBC Four last night, a rather curious programme which I have to say only caught my attention because of the AR connection, unfortunately this was quite a tenuous one!

Dick Strawbridge and Alice Roberts (with Strawbridge getting most of the screen time) explored the Lake District, the Norfolk Broads, Pin Mill and the Essex Backwaters using AR's books as a starting point. Some attractive aerial shots of all the places which were good to see (particularly my own back yard!) but not much else of interest.

I began to wonder if this had been offered as an idea for a series (by the look of it from the company that make the 'Coast' programmes) and the BBC agreed to give them an hour!
