This was very interesting. What was most fascinating to me was how that shore still had remnants of clay pipes from long ago.

I watched this when first broadcast, a good show without the usual ramming the anti-smoking brigade downour throats.

As an aside, the presenter Brian Cox was the first actor ever to play Hanibal Lechter in a film called Manhunter many years before the Silence of the Lambs films came out.

Ive seen this post fpr a couple of days but didnt get a chance to watch it. Today I got to the 34th minute and I will finish it later. It is very good. But my initial intrigue is with the narrator who is an actor I cant place in movies but I love his acting. Jason Bourne movies perhapsÉ

Brian Cox is the host/narrator. He has been in a ton of classic movies like Rushmore. The Boxer, Troy and Bourne Supremacy and Identity as well.
