There will be a localised version for each region of England, well-known guides tour 11 riverside locations across the country, revealing how the waterways have shaped the local landscape, history and culture.
River Walks takes viewers to beautiful locations around England including the River Nidd in North Yorkshire, the Severn Way in the Midlands, River Exe on Exmoor and the Kentish Stour. Sindhu will be walking the Severn Way in the Midlands. Sindhu said: “On stage I introduce myself as Sindhu The Hindu but after this I could be Sindhu The Hindu Hiker.”
Stuart Thomas, head of programmes for BBC England, said: “I hope we inspire viewers to get out and about in the great outdoors and follow in the footsteps of our presenters along these spectacular walking routes.”
