England 2: The River Thames

England 2: The River Thames

"Highly Recommended. It is no exaggeration to call the River Thames one of the world's most beautiful waterways. It is also one of the most captivating ways to see the scenery, historical landmarks, ancient sites, and modern structures that line the riverbanks of the Thames. David Suchet is a most suitable narrator for this leisurely trip by boat, introducing information and commentary that enhances the viewer's journey. The program serves as a mellifluous backdrop to a scenic trip past some of England's most beautiful and historic sites." -EMRO Review
David Suchet (star of Poirot) welcomes viewers on an incredible journey down the river Thames; he says, "Its course is like traveling through the pages of English history." Beginning at the debated source, above Lechlade, the winding course of the upper Thames takes us through many riverside towns and villages full of character and individual charm. Manors, abbeys, and battle sites line the ancient banks as the river passes through Oxford and onto Reading. The glorious English countryside that unfolds as the river meanders on from Henley to Richmond encompasses some of the world's most famous cultural and historic landmarks, including Windsor Castle, Hampton Court and Eton College. England's capital beckons as the majestic river passes Kew, Chelsea, and on to the heart of London itself, where few structures have more outstanding histories than the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and Tower Bridge. Before reaching the journey's end at the Thames Barrier, we see some of the river's most recent landmarks, including the Tate Modern, London Eye, and the Millennium Dome.
