The Thames: Britain’s Great River with Tony Robinson – Episode 2
Series 1 – Episode 2
Tony Robinson has reached the mid-section of the Thames, a stretch, he tells us, that’s ideal for messing about on the river. And so he does just that, although sorting through the mess of a sewage works is possibly not what he had in mind. It’s not as smelly as he feared, but he does notice that the people of Reading eat a lot of sweetcorn. Operating the locks at Abingdon and sailing an antique skiff are more like it, but his bid to cox a crew from the Leander Rowing Club of Henley-on-Thames is a disaster. They’re less than thrilled when he steers them into the bank.
