I agree trickster, not seen this one, but watching BBC Coast programme resulted in our visiting beautiful places we'd not heard of

Lots of travel programmes on TV, most of them are dire

Hope this one is better

It is Roger.

For example I learned about the only car to be made in Wales The Gilbern.

It was a top end model, but eventually failed.

There's lots of clips about the quirky things people get up to.

When. I travel somewhere I like to read up on the history and how the people and places came to be there and how the locals have achieved their unique character.

I agree with loving the history. I’ve recebtly bought a vintage Achilles Yacht, a boat made in Swansea, now ceased but there’s a lot of love for these little boats and many have been restored to a magnificent standard!
