Some questionable editing in the programme. Approaching Barton Broad and we’re shown overhead shots of Malthouse Broad. On the Ant and we get an overhead of Thurne windpump.

Much as I like Tim, with his navigation ‘skills’, I certainly wouldn’t let him loose with that beautiful boat if it was mine.  Gasp  Smile

Good programme overall but...I just wish Tim wouldn’t consider boating to be a contact sport. LOL

I had not seen all of it before (and never bothered on catch-up), but I quite enjoyed it.  Compared with the recent 'CountryFile Visits the Broads', it was a massive improvement.  

They jumped about quite a lot  -  it was not the usual format of a 'voyage' from A to B, stopping off at interesting places along the way.  The funniest was on the 'Broads Beat' boat, which was supposedly patrolling Breydon  -  they must have got lost, because they were beside Thurne Mill (!)

I also think it is great to have representatives from an older generation fronting programmes like this, rather than the fresh young faces who appear to know very little - I'm thinking of Countryfile's 'in depth' report on the engineering of Horsey Mill :  'Wow, what a big cog wheel".

They were keen boaters, who said they regretted not having visited the Broads before, and marveling at how lovely it was  -  what more recommendation could one wish for?

I did think it was a shame that they were not on a more authentic boat.  That one may have had it's keel laid in 1938 but looks very much like the proverbial axe of two heads and three handles.  It did rather point up how much more sympathetic the work that the 'Donny' lot did on Broad ambition was. Why not a Broom's Admiral, one of the original Martham 'woodies'or something like Prunella.  In point of Fact a journey on Adrea or Solace would rally been a treat and probably better television.
