Six explorations with Professor W. G. Hoskins
6: The Deserted Midlands
In the heart of England, from the Upper Thames to Banbury, it is still possible to find a lonely countryside with roads and lanes that have been untouched for centuries.
PROFESSOR HOSKINS shows us why it is such an empty landscape; why some villages have gone and others remain; why a common was a battleground between lord and peasant only 150 years ago; and how the rich variety of building stone contributes so much to the English landscape.
Film cameraman NAT CROSBY
