A duke with a coalmine
Engineers with bold ideas...
Navigators dressed in moleskins....
These men built bridges, blasted tunnels, threw channels over valleys. They cut the first great highways across the length and breadth of England.
(Next week: A Cut above the Others - from Merseyside to Humber)
'A sight fit for ladies to see.' This was the description given to the Barton Stone Aqueduct designed by James Brindley and opened on July 17, 1761
Two centuries ago the trade of England was carried on the rivers by the small sailing craft and barges that plied along the tidal waterways. Where the navigations ended, horses, men, and mules moved the loads from place to place. To carry anything anywhere was a slow, costly, laborious business. All this was changed by the canal giants. They were the men who took on the job of driving the first great highways across the length and breadth of England. They did it without mechanical aids. They relied on the sweat and toil of the 'navigators' - the men who dug the cut with pick and shovel.
The first major canal was built to bring coal more easily into the city of Manchester. The story of this navigation-the Bridgewater canal - and of the men who designed and built it, is equivalent in modern times to the story of the construction of a motorway.
Tonight at 7.0 Macdonald Hastings looks at the engineers, the navigators, and the industrialists who saw a future for the great canals. He looks also at the other 'canal giants' - the aqueducts and bridges that were built to carry the waterways. He visits Marple near Stockport to see the aqueduct that only a few years ago was said to have served its purpose, and meets the people who believe that the Marple aqueduct is a giant with a new future of service to the community.

Think of a story about a limping man. Mix in a murder, a few spies, a little hate. It's a good story - but what does one do when, suddenly, hideously, it all comes true?
