The Netherlands

Series 6 The Netherlands



The team travels to the Netherlands, where Nick Crane explores how Dutch engineers created massive coastal defences following the North Sea floods in 1953 that killed thousands of people. Historian Tessa Dunlop investigates why the tulip trade nearly bankrupted the country 400 years ago, Mark Horton discovers how a large area of coastal land was drained to create new living space, and Miranda Krestovnikoff finds out about raw herring becoming a popular seaside snack. Meanwhile, Countryfile's Adam Henson traces the history of the Friesian cow trade with Britain.
