Join Alan Herd for a trip along Britain s canals.

Narrow Boat
Join master craftsman Alan Herd as he journeys around the canals and waterways of Britain in search of surviving examples of boat building craft and restores an old 70-foot working boat into a state-of-the-art floating holiday home. The series celebrates the enchanting industrial past of Britain's canals and also looks to the future as Alan fulfils a lifelong ambition by painstakingly converting an 80 year old traditional working boat into a truly 21st century luxury vessel. Narrow Boat follows Alan through the transformation process and then on to the IWA National Boat Show in a bid to win first prize for his efforts.

Narrow Boat Afloat
Alan Herd returns in Narrow Boat Afloat, travelling the Grand Union Canal from the Gas Street Basin Birmingham down to Bulls Bridge then London, visiting places of historical and industrial significance. The Discovery cameras follow Alan s narrow boat Dover through glorious English countryside as she travels 126 miles and traverses 178 locks. Along the way Alan gets involved in the many restoration projects that are preserving the UK's industrial heritage.

This is an excellent series of 20 programmes each lasting just over 22 minutes. Master Craftsman Alan Herd fully restores a 1930s steel Narrow Boat to a state of the art 21st Century One, whilst still keeping the original 1930s exterior appearance. So 'Narrow Boat' is the restoration series and 'Afloat' is taking Narrow Boat 'Dover' on a very pleasant cruise along the 'Grand Union Canal' from Birmingham to London where we meet up with lots of very interesting people, along with lots of historical interest and some Very Good archive footage (some in colour).

Please be aware as I had a problem with my set, I had to return it because the picture broke up on Disc One of 'Narrow Boat' it pixelated towards the end of episode One. So I purchased another from a different online retailer and the same thing happened. There is no problem with my DVD player as the disc was checked on my PC and Blu-ray player and also playback on my DVD Recorder. (there must be a faulty batch going around)
So what I did was purchase the programmes seperately 'Narrow Boat' and 'Narrow Boat Afloat' by doing that I have had no problems with any of the disc what so ever.
Thanks to Amazon for a prompt refund and thanks for reading.

I first saw the Narrow Boat on a Sky TV channel a couple of years ago and have been trying to get the DVD ever since.
Its the type of programme you can watch again and again, and now I have the DVD I'm looking forward to doing just that.
Bonus series of Narrow Boat Afloat will be a welcome addition

It's a pity about the sound on Narrowboat as it fades in and out and is not in time with the picture some of the time, however Narrowboat afloat has no such problems and is an interesting view.

Well presented and informative coverage of the restoration with some interesting historic facts thrown in. The "Afloat" section was also an interesting coverage of canal life and history. Don't remember seeing a final tour of the completed boat but I may have just missed this. Good value and entertaining.
