Walking Through History

Appealing to history buffs and dedicated ramblers alike, Sir Tony Robinson embarks on spectacular walks through some of Britain’s most historic landscapes in search of the richest stories from Britain’s past.

In each programme, Tony follows a bespoke route that allows him to explore on foot both the history of a particularly colourful historical period or event, and the spectacular landscape in which those events unfolded.  The walks are proper expeditions with each one taking Tony several days. With various experts he encounters on the way, Tony reveals and discovers places and their hidden stories that ordinary walkers and ramblers might otherwise miss. And, as well as the history, Tony infuses each walk with an appreciation of some of the striking landscapes and geographical features Britain contains.
