The Golden Age of Canals

About this programme

Documentary charting the changing face of Britain's canals after the Second World War, as enthusiasts fought to save the inland waterways from destruction - despite facing strong opposition from the government. Amateur and professional footage illustrates the canals' transformation from industrial thoroughfares to tourist attractions during the 1950s and 1960s, as well as efforts to restore and preserve the network's locks and boats. Narrated by Gina McKee.
