If you have an hour to spare, I recommend an episode of the Channel 4 'Great Canal Journeys' series (including waterways) starring veteran actors Timothy West and Prunella Scales. This episode features the Norfolk Broads - they hire a restored 1938 launch and set off from Horning. Prunella was brought up on Ransome and has 'Coot Club' with her, and quotes from it frequently. Good camera-work, and there's some historical footage as well. It's very peaceful - no drama, but quiet and charming. Margoletta they are not, but a fair amount of red wine is consumed . . .
