Introduced by David Attenborough and presented by environmentalist Chris Baines, the film is an odyssey along the river as it meanders through London and flows out to sea, exploring its ever-changing ecology.
The Thames is Britain’s most famous river. Nevertheless, many people don’t know very much about it. For millions who see it every day, it’s a mystery. Sixty years ago, the Thames was severely polluted. Many people still see it as dead and dirty.
The reality, however, is completely different. Thanks to the dedicated work of many, the Thames has recovered dramatically to become the cleanest urban estuary in Europe, and teems with life.
This film follows the Thames from the upper tidal reach to the estuary, telling the hidden stories of the wildlife and people connected to it.
This takes place in the Ward room at the University of Greenwich, Central Avenue, Chatham Maritime, Kent ME4 4TB
