All Aboard: The Canal Trip is unrealistic

… and otherworldly.

Mis-managed my sleep and fell asleep during a worthy programme on the Lake District; imagine my confusion waking up to “All Aboard! The Canal Trip” – soundtrack of babbling water to pictures of a journey along a canal.

Of course, it’s better than that, and I missed its initial broadcast (just before the election) when the reviews came out. The Independent reviewed the reviews – with the mix of “boring” and innovative.
It’s unrealistic cos you don’t hear the boat – and so this sensation of low-level flying is developed; a kind of flying that seems faster than the actual 8 miles covered in 2 hours in a single unedited shot.
Surprisingly gripping.
