The Thames: Britain's Great River with Tony Robinson

THE THAMES: BRITAIN'S GREAT RIVER WITH TONY ROBINSON

Tony Robinson has always been fascinated by the River Thames. It runs right through the place where he was born – London, and where his family have lived for 300 years.

Now, he’s going to get to know it even more intimately as he makes the 200-mile journey from source to sea to discover what makes it one of the greatest rivers in the world.

Along the way, Tony meets and immerses himself in the lives of those who work along the river, and explores how the Thames has shaped the history and culture of Britain.
