Popular BBC series in which Griff Rhys Jones retraces the lost routes across Britain that have shaped our landscape and our history. He follows four routes; each one associated with the historic movement of people, trade or commodities and along the way provides his own perspective on contemporary British life. Griff reveals why we once travelled for pleasure, profit and piety. By walking a Welsh pilgrim s route, transporting hay around the Essex coast, recreating a Tudor Royal Progression and droving cattle across Scotland he explores the landscapes and meets the people who inhabit them today, using the here and now as a portal to the past. From the luxury of a Rolls Royce to the more basic surroundings of a barge, from transporting a bus-load of contemporary pilgrims to the perils of moving a cow, he gets to grips with exactly how our ancestors journeyed from place to place - and how they amused themselves en-route. With his unending curiosity and inherent wit, Griff investigates the stories of those who travelled these now forgotten paths and considers the cultural as well as environmental impact they have had on the history of Britain

Seriously, in America we are flooded with stupid, banal television. To escape to something as wonderful as this makes my day any time it is available.
Beautifully shot, informative and jovial. Another great series that my only regret is not picking it up sooner.
