Maconie features in BBC documentary exploring England’s most scenic riverbanks


Broadcaster Stuart Maconie is among those taking part in a new one-off BBC documentary exploring England’s most scenic riverbanks.

Eleven films – each one localised for a different region of England – will reveal how the waterways have shaped the local landscape, history and culture.

Radio 6 Music presenter and novelist Maconie will take a picturesque walk along the River Hodder in the Forest of Bowland.

Middlesbrough-born presenter Kirsten O’Brien will explore the headwaters of the River Tees while blind adventurer Amar Latif will discover how the stunning North Yorkshire landscape along the River Nidd has been shaped.

Others taking part include Rachel Johnson and her father Stanley abd singer-turned-farmer JB Gill.

Stuart Thomas, head of programmes BBC England, said: “In River Walks we have 11 charming films that showcase the natural beauty to be found up and down England. I hope we inspire viewers to get out and about in the great outdoors and follow in the footsteps of our presenters along these spectacular walking routes.”

River Walks airs on BBC One on Monday 10 December at 7.30pm. Each of the 11 English regions will see its own episode, with the entire series being available nationwide on BBC iPlayer.

The two-day expo returns on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th February 2019
