The Lake District

Comedian Rosie Jones embarks on an adventure around Britain, gorging on culture, learning local traditions and witnessing unique sights. In this first episode, Rosie takes TV presenter Scarlett Moffatt to the Lake District. The duo visit the former home of William Wordsworth to seek inspiration for their own poetry, before re-enacting a Viking battle at Kendal Castle. They also manage to survive a driving course on a 100-year-old traction engine, meet a historian to learn about the region's ancient cuisine and run into a spot of bother with a very old sausage-making machine. Narrated by Olivia Colman, with Rachel Stubbings
