The Won­der of Bri­tain ITV, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Ju­lia Brad­bury em­barks on a jour­ney choos­ing as­sets she be­lieves the pub­lic should be proud of. Here, she ex­plores the In­dus­trial Revo­lu­tion, vis­it­ing the Pont­cy­syllte aqueduct, which car­ries the Llan­gollen canal over the val­ley of the River Dee near Wrex­ham. Com­pleted in 1805, it is the long­est and high­est aqueduct in Bri­tain and is now cat­e­gorised as a Grade I listed build­ing. She also boards Brunel’s for­mer pas­sen­ger steamship the SS Great Bri­tain and ap­pre­ci­ates the gothic majesty of Manch­ester Town Hall and the iconic fun of Black­pool Tower.
