Both volumes of the BBC series where comedians Dara O'Briain, Rory McGrath, and Griff Rhys-Jones take to the water to humourously emulate Jerome K. Jerome's famous novel. In the first series, our intrepid voyagers navigate the river Thames between Kingston and Oxford, stopping off along the way to take in refreshments and visit friends like David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. Series two finds the seasoned travellers casting off from the south coast en route to the Isle of Wight, aboard the relative luxury of Griff's 1950s racing yacht 'Undina', all the while trying to survive the hazardous perils of the English Channel.
