Birth Of Britain 2/3

8:00pm Monday, January 24 on C4

Tony Robinson travels from the north of Scotland to the banks of the River Thames to uncover how ice ages have shaped the country we live in today. From the stunning landscapes of the Highlands and the Lake District to the busy streets of Glasgow, Tony examines evidence that Britain’s climate was once very different. Britain was once in the grip of a ferocious endless winter: an Ice Age. Tony explores how Arctic conditions and ice sheets over a mile thick have carved out the landscape of modern Britain.
