Narrated by Bill Nighy, this series showcases beautiful and distinctive rivers in Europe and North America, from the Hudson to the Shannon, the Niagara to the Moselle. We meet the rich diversity of people who live and work on these rivers, hitching rides on fishing boats and barges, tugboats and yachts, even canoes and replica Viking ships, hopping on and off to explore the wealth of hidden stories along the riverbanks. The world’s most beautiful rivers aren’t only to be admired for their scenery – they are also working rivers, the lifeblood of nations and cultural highways, shaping and sustaining the people who live and work along their shores.
