History turns back for Betty and John again, and you are going to hear about some of the things that happened round the lovely Chiltern Hills. On the reaches of the Thames where it flows through the Chilterns the Roman barges used to come and go, and you will hear how a Viking ship arrived there one day. Then you wil be taken on to the days of the Norman Conquest to meet some of the people engaged in making road surveys along Watling Street. Also you will learn something about the gliding or sail-planing that goes on from the northern slopes of the Chilterns today. (From Regional)
