Walk­ing Through His­tory: Bronte Coun­try Chan­nel 4, 8pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Tony Robin­son has spent three se­ries of this pro­gramme ram­bling through some of Bri­tain’s most ex­tra­or­di­nary land­scapes. The ac­tor-turned-pre­sen­ter must have been scour­ing his Ord­nance Survey maps closely, be­cause he’s back with another bunch of epic treks, be­gin­ning with one that takes in the dra­matic moors and val­leys of West York­shire. It’s the area that in­spired such amaz­ing pieces of lit­er­a­ture as the Bronte sis­ters’ Wuther­ing Heights and Jane Eyre, and Tony does in­deed follow in their foot­steps by vis­it­ing their birth­place.
