* John Sergeant puts on the focus on Llangollen in his new series.
Llangollen features in a forthcoming episode of a new TV show in which former BBC political reporter John Sergeant tours Britain’s canal network.
Entitled Barging Around Britain, the eight-part series which begins on ITV tomorrow (Friday) takes him on a rich and colourful voyage along the eight best canal journeys Britain has to offer, exploring their extraordinary stories as he goes.
Episode two, due to be screened next Friday (February 20) at 8pm, brings Sergeant to Llangollen as he arrives in Wales.
Advance publicity says: “He gets his fingers burnt attempting to be a blacksmith, is terrified going over a super high aqueduct and shocked by some saucy artwork in a fellow narrow boat.”
Scenes for the episode were shot at Llangollen Railway and show him on the station with a steam train.
