OUR GREAT CANAL JOURNEYS: A Lifetime of Memories
Bibliophile price: £8.00
The charming, calming excellent series of television programmes that follow Timothy West and Prunella Scales as they meander along the canals, taking in the sights and sounds, has captivated millions of viewers. Here, as well as recounting some of the stories of their acting life and of their many waterway journeys, Timothy examines the trials that ageing can bring, including Prunella's struggle with dementia. Yet the happiness and joy that the travels bring to the couple still outweigh the difficulties, and so, whether visiting the house - the Old Forge at Abinger - where Prunella was born, or ending up under the M40 as all the best moorings had been taken, Timothy and Prunella cruise the waterways not just in Britain, but Venice, Sweden and France as well. Prunella's problems are dealt with sympathetically but humorously as she tries to remember what she is looking for, or forgets to insert her 'ears' (hearing aids) when taking a phone call. The couple's love for each other shines through. Illustrated with beautiful photographs of the boats, waterways and scenery. 244pp, colour illus.
