Julia Bradbury's Canal Walks; The Golden Age Of Canals

8.30pm; 9pm, BBC4

An appealing documentary on the history of the UK's man-made waterways since the second world war is preceded by Julia Bradbury's Canal Walks, which this week takes in the Kennet & Avon canal linking Bristol to London. She starts in Bath and heads towards Devizes, via the Caen Hill locks, an incredible feat of Victorian engineering. But her presenting style is too urgent and thrusting for a lovely ambient programme about rambling. It needs a straight Julia-for-John-Craven swap; she's all hi-tech Lycra. Craven would do it in cord slacks and a nice red jumper.
