Sorry to disagree Peter, but I found the programme disappointing other than some great footage of the broads from the air (and as much as I admire both of them for their acting.) To be told that the Broads themselves are 'man made' is a 'secret' was odd!

There were moments when Prunella Scales comments about CC came across as if she had never read the book until asked to for the programme.

They could have made more about how AR was actually highlighting that the increase in tourist usage even in the 1930s was harming the Broads, it was busy with hire boats when I visited as a child in the 1960s but some of the footage would maybe put people off going there at all!

So for the two of them that's the Broads done and dusted, previous series have covered a whole area's canals and waterways.
