A retired man decides to fulfill his life-time ambition and walk the length of Britain from Land's End to John O'Groats. The film centres around the "discovery" of himself, the relationship with his wife (who is unsure of his reasons) and the colourful, and not so colourful, people he meets on his travels.

The play had originally been filmed with actor Ray McAnally
playing the lead part of Alan Holly. He died just before completion so the BBC started from scratch with Joss Ackland
. The second time around, they decided to film the walk in reverse order, starting with the John O'Groats scenes (the end of Alan's walk) and ending with the Land's End scenes (the beginning of the walk). See more
