Released at beginning of September 2018, to celebrate 40 years of Paddle Steamer Waverley's visits to the Thames : A voyage up river from Gravesend to the Pool of London, plus archive footage of Thames excursion steamers of the past.
In this programme we join Waverley at Gravesend and sail up the Thames to London passing under the QE2 bridge, past the Thames Barrage and the high-rise buildings on London's business district.
We sail past he historic waterfront of Greenwich, where we cross - not once but three times - the Greenwich Meridian of zero degrees longitude, before the excitement of Tower Bridge opening as the steamer sails through the upper pool of London.
With the help of Maritime historian Peter Box, we discover the history of passenger steamers on the Thames and through archive footage see Waverley on her first Thames visit in 1978.
