"Most of the walks Tony Robinson follows are around 100km long, and although he doesn't walk the full extent for the camera, he reckons he covers at least that distance during filming. "I walk my arse off," he says. "Every shot we do needs three or four takes - so I go up a mountain, come back down, and go up again."
The scenery is stunning and we enjoyed each episode. The photo below is from Cornwall, snapped from our TV as we watched. This one detailed smuggling in the area and I learned the sayings "the coast is clear" and it's "all above board" originate from those times.
How I would love to be in shape and walk these trails. The history and walsk near Hadrians Wall was of particular interest to me.
