Storyline

The team explores British connections to the Swedish coast. Nick Crane views a mountain range still rising at the rate of one centimetre a year - and discovers a similar phenomenon is also occurring in the Highlands of Scotland. Alice Roberts reveals how merchant seamen from Hull helped save the Second World War military effort by sneaking a vital shipment of Swedish ball bearings past the German Navy. Mark Horton visits the wreck of the Vasa, a ship commissioned 400 years ago to spearhead the Swedish navy, only to sink on its maiden voyage. Dick Strawbridge climbs the rigging of one of the last great commercial sailing ships, known as the Windjammers. The team also explore Abba Island and search out moose in Sweden's frozen North.
