The complex Great Ouse river system, including the River Cam, is a result of a centuries-old three-way battle between millers, the need to drain the fens, and navigators, with the non land-owning navigators usually losing out.
This programme helps you to understand the complexity of the system. It captures the feeling of isolation, and shows you plenty of wildlife. It examines man's historic battle to drain the fens with a look at some massive pumping machinery.
