Episode 1: The Call of the Sea. This first of three programmes sees Timothy and wife Shane set off in their Dutch barge, the Princess Matilda, from Fowey in Cornwall, heading towards Lands End and then into South Wales. By his own admission, Timothy is an unqualified and slightly nervous mariner, but Shane has every confidence in his seafaring abilities. Episode 2: The Bogey Man Timothy. Spall s voyage around Britain continues with the latest leg of his Cornish adventure. Timothy took to the sea with wife Shane, after recovering from a serious illness and this self taught mariner now has to cope with the highly dangerous waters around Lizard Point if he is to make South Wales by winter. Episode 3: Race Against the Tide. The concluding leg of this part of Timothy Spall s epic sea journey around the coast of Britain. He took to the waters of these islands following a serious illness and hasn t looked back (literally!). In this programme, Timothy aided and abetted by wife Shane, navigates their Durch barge around the dangerous waters of Land s End. Episode 4: The Luck of the Irish... Sea After spending 6 months moored in Cardiff for winter it s now time to reinstate the round-Britain adventure. It s April and Captain Timothy Spall is nervous as hell. He s spent thousands on extra navigating equipment. This new leg means tackling the unpredictable Irish Sea and he ll need all the help he can get. Episode 5: Mad About the Buoys. Tim and Shane Spall are leaving Wales and heading for England. The entry to Liverpool, amazingly a city Tim has never been to, is not a straightforward as he first thought. Skipper Spall has decided to keep out of the busy shipping lane to avoid conflict with tankers, ferries and trawlers. Episode 6: The Bit in the Middle. Leaving Piel Island our nervous mariner heads towards Whitehaven, the last port they ll visit on the west coast of England. In this episode we see the Spalls visit three countries and the Isle of Man. First though, they have to avoid a military training session as bombs can be heard exploding on the water. Episode 7: Scotch Mist. The Spalls are looking forward to exploring Scotland for the next year. From Troon they head into East Loch Tarbert, it s misty and the Irish Sea has turned peaty black as it merges with the sea lochs. On arrival at Tarbert this beautiful location is tinged with an air of tackiness. From the edge of the harbour wall they can hear techno music rumbling full blast as it s fun fair weekend. Episode 8 Message In A Bottle. The actor and his wife Shane begin the final part of their journey around Britain on board their barge the Princess Matilda. At Rattray Head in north-east Scotland, they turn right and head south for the first time - but struggle to cope with the inhospitable conditions they encounter as they venture into the North Sea. Episode 9 - Stags By The Sea. The Princess Matilda sails around north-east England, beginning in the coastal town of Amble. Tim and Shane are impressed by Northumberland's historic buildings, including Warkworth Castle and the Church of St Lawrence, and also meet a young sailor circumnavigating Britain in the opposite direction to them. Episode 10 - God s Own Coast. The Princess Matilda sails along the Yorkshire coast, as it continues to wind its way back to London. The Spalls explore Whitby's links to classic horror novel Dracula, and visit Scarborough at the height of the tourist season, before arriving at Spurn Head - where they are forced to moor their boat to a buoy as they wait for the weather conditions that will enable them to continue their journey south. Episode 11 - The Last Splash. The Spalls embark on the final leg of their journey around Britain's coastline aboard the Princess Matilda, beginning at Shotley Marina in Suffolk.

This is a great DVD to have. Tim and his wife Shane, going round Britain in their ocean going barge, no holds barred, you see them as they are, a normal married couple, enjoying each others company, as they go on their epic journey.
As well as being hilarious, they go to some lovely places, round our coast, and Tim gives you a history lesson, while they are there, the places they don,t stop, he also has a tale to tell, as they sail past.
They have some famous friends, as well as family, who hop on board for part of the journey, and the scenery is outstanding .Although being funny in places, Tim is not afraid to tell you it frightens the life out of him at times, and he certainly doesn,t make light of the dangers, they faced on some very rough seas.
I missed some of the episodes on TV, so when this came out, it was a must have, and it hasn,t disappointed, in anyway at all. Tim and Shane have given us a treat with this, as well as highlighting some of the lovely places in this country, that are well worth a visit.
My only fault is that you join them as they are going round Cornwall, and I would have liked to seen the whole circuit. I haven,t seen any thing to suggest that they will bring the first part of the journey out.
Apart from that tiny fault, I have no other qualms in telling you, its a brilliant watch, there are no airs and graces about either of them, which is what makes it such compulsive viewing.
Well worth adding to your collection.

Funny and charming. Like a quality wine, it gets better with age. Educational value also.... so many places in Britain that I'd never heard of before.

Probably the best TV programme for a long time. It was like being part of the adventure with Tim and his supportive wife Shane, they are a lovely down to earth couple and although Tim is an actor I think for the most part he was just being himself. The program has inspired my wife and I to buy a boat and copy something simular when we feel competent enough.
Thanks Tim and Shane, and good luck with everything you do.

Loved it on the TV, missed a few episodes so great to catch up. Really good, lots of laughs and lovely sights on their voyage. So natural with each other, no airs and graces.

This is a great DVD, a simple format with apparently one cameraman recording Tim and his wife's adventure navigating the coast of Britain on their customised barge. It gives it an intimate insite into life on the barge and the trials and high points they experience. Despite Tim being an actor it's all very natural and their barneys when trying to moor to buoys are particularly entertaining. There's some fantastic scenery and it opens your eyes as to how beautiful our coastline is. There's a place in Wales ( I think ) which I'd never heard of but it could be the Caribbean if you didn't know otherwise. I bought this DVD for my Mum and her husband as they have sailed much of the south coast but I couldn't help watching it before I gave it to them as I'd caught a few episodes when it was on TV. They really enjoyed it too but I don't think you need to be a seagoer to enjoy this. I'd very much recommend this as a dvd you can watch and enjoy and learn more about our country's impressive coastline.
