DVD 1: 
WALES & THE SOUTH
 
From the back cover:
 
 
Travel along Britain’s longest river, the Severn, 
and witness the remarkable Severn Bore- 
a rare event that sees the tide surge up the river, 
providing an exhilarating ride for surfers. 
   
Discover the waterway history of Bath and Gloucester 
and the engineering feats of the Pontcysyllte aqueduct
known as ‘the river in the sky’. 
Then marvel at the Llangolen canal and the remarkable views
from the Chirk aqueduct. 
 
Cruise down the gentle and poetic Avon
before moving on the Thames. 
See the Queen’s ‘swan-uppers’, at work marking the beautiful birds
and ensuring that they remain in good health. 
Enjoy racing boats at the Goring regatta
and punting boats 
along the banks of Oxford’s rivers. 
Then onwards to London 
and the remarkable story of how The Thames turned from
a polluted mess into the cleanest urban river in the world. 
All these and many more stories are contained within one volume- 
Wales & the South
– of ‘Scenic Journeys on British and Irish Waterways’. 
 
 
DVD 2: 
MIDLANDS & THE NORTH
 
FROM THE BACK COVER:
 
Discover how the industrial revolution relied upon a network of canals
to transport goods and materials around the British Isles-
and how Manchester, or ‘Cottonopolis’ as it was known in the 19th Century, 
grew due to its remarkable network of canals. 
 
 
Then onwards to the beauty of the Lake District- Ullswater, Wasdale and Derwentwater-
to discover how generations of visitors 
have enjoyed these unique and majestic landscapes. 
York beckons and tells of its Viking past and how the river Ouse 
played its part in the development of one of England’s 
most remarkable walled cities. 
 
Our journey finishes in Newcastle- famous worldwide for the river Tyne
and the bridges that cross it. 
We cruise beneath each bridge and receive fascinating anecdotes
from Doug Burn a local historian and lover of the Geordie nation. 
This second volume of ‘Scenic Journeys on British and Irish Waterways’
is a sheer delight to watch from start to finish. 
 
 
DVD 3:
SCOTLAND & IRELAND
 
FROM THE BACK COVER:
 
Our waterway journey continues towards the serenity of Scotland & Ireland
and the magnificent Lough Neagh. 
One of the largest expanses of fresh water in the British Isles, 
18 miles long, 
more than 70 miles around its perimeter, 
its beauty is legendary. 
 
Discover how monks founded a series of sacred sites around Loch Erne
in the sixth century and marvel at what remains of their devotion today
before coming firmly into the 21st century and the remarkable Falkirk wheel in Scotland. 
A feat of engineering that evokes the passion of Brunel and Telford, 
its modern design lifts boats 115 feet into the air-
it has to be seen to be believed!
 
We move on to beautiful Loch Lomond, 
the Caledonian canal and then to Loch Ness 
to find out from a local expert whether he thinks Nessie is actually real. 
Our journey along British and Irish waterways concludes on the river Shannon
with a much needed trip to an Irish Whiskey distillery
that makes use of the local water and is still powered by a
charming waterwheel.
