An exploration of the Wainwright heartland. When the young ALFRED WAINWRIGHT first saw the mountains of Lakeland it was an experience that changed his life. In the only television series he made in his lifetime, as an old man, he recreated his love affair with Lakeland for the BBC in the company of ERIC ROBSON. They explored Orrest Head and Kendal, Haweswater and Borrowdale. It was a journey that culminated in an emotional visit to his favourite mountain Haystacks. But WAINWRIGHTS fascination with landscape took him far beyond the narrow confines of the Lake District. In a journey that awoke memories of days of youthful exploration he also introduced Eric to the Howgill Fells, tracts of limestone country around Penyghent and the high, lush Pennine valley of Teesdale. Spectacular scenery and walking in the company of a master.
