Border Country: The Story of Britain’s Lost Middleland

My (almost) local MP, Rory Stewart, has made a fantastic documentary about the border country. I say “(almost) local” because his constituency of Penrith and The Border actually stops just short of Keswick.

He puts forward a fascinating and largely forgotten history of the Border Country, the impact of Hadrian’s Wall, and how the historical records are broadly overlooked today.

The two parts are available on the BBC iPlayer for another four days, I’d highly recommend you watch them.
