S7-E3 The Hidden History of Harbours

Catch Up


The team visits Denmark where Neil Oliver learns about the concept of `hygge', a feeling of wellbeing almost impossible to translate into any other language. Nick Crane explains why Britain imports so much Danish bacon, Alice Roberts sails aboard a full-scale replica of a Viking longship, and Miranda Krestovnikoff encounters red deer. Mark Horton reveals the story of Heligoland, a tiny island used by the Royal Navy in 1947 for one of the largest non-nuclear explosive detonations in history, and Dick Strawbridge examines the construction of one of the world's largest offshore wind farms.
