"Walking Through History"

To readers here in the UK, I would like to recommend that you catch last night's programme "Walking Through History" on Channel 4.

A few years ago when we were discussing holiday destinations, B mentioned that she would like to go to Jersey, I was not so sure but last night's programme has tweaked my interest.

Sir Tony Robinson (of Baldric fame) has for many years fronted an archaeology programme. Now he makes these programmes of walks in the UK countryside. Last night's programme was in the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey. They have a range of fortifications, medieval castles, Elizabethan period, 18th and 19th century defences and German built WWII defences, part of the Atlantic Wall. The programme has moved Jersey to the top of our list of Spring Trip Destinations.
