I have just viewed my Julia Bradbury Canal and Railways Walks videos.
This is the Britain I love coming to visit from Australia.
The camerman has removed some of the need for an extensive commentry, but Julia has included appearances by some great local identities.
But what fantastic helicopter shots have been taken!
This work has helped me to appreciate both the engineering and the wonderful country-side.
These programs are inspirational.

Julia Bradbury has put together a very interesting collection of walks with commentary thats makes one want to go do the walks for themselves. Canal walks have so much appeal to all ages, the scenery and history make for interesting viewing. I am extremely happy with my purchase and with the prompt service i received from Amazon UK.

These are two very good BBC series ; as described on the box they feature some mid-distance walks along canals & abandoned railway lines across the UK. Julia B is an excellent presenter, not too posh or too chavvy and she certainly gives you the inspiration to get out and enjoy the countryside. Plus she has the filthiest laugh of anyone on the beeb ! Good on yer Jules, any chance of an Urban walks series ??

Purchased to make up a birthday present with rail based interest.
The Canal content being suitable for any transport or history oriented viewer.
All presented by the gamine ladette personality that is Julia Bradbury.
Enough facts for education enough history to impress other transportists; and enough aerial shots to satisfy any drone pilot.
Well worth the money as the programmes can be dipped into rather than viewed from end to end.
With the dire state of terrestrial free-view, 100 channels and nothing to view, video grams will continue to find a ready market.

I was a little disappointed with this series - the episodes seemed so rushed - twice the length would have made them much more interesting. The little that was shown only began to wet my appetite for me, and then it wasn't there! It's all very well to cram as much into a series as you can, but I think quantity is quality when it comes to the detail included in these programs.
