Carved between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the magic of the ‘Big Sur’ stretches just 90 miles long and 20 miles wide and is flanked on the east by the Santa Lucia Mountains. Just offshore is the largest submarine canyon in North America, where a rich upwelling from the deep nourishes shallow kelp forests.
At the shoreline, rocks are mobbed with many species of seals and sea lions. Two miles inland, coastal redwoods offer sanctuary to cougars, California condors and several unusual and rarely seen creatures. East of the tall trees, Big Sur stretches into meadows and oak woodlands where coyotes and hawks compete with rattlesnakes for small prey. Nowhere else in the world does such a wide variety of extreme habitats exist in such close proximity to one another.

Tony Robinson takes a 45 mile hike through the beautiful countryside of the Weald in Kent and East Sussex to discover its rich and surprising Tudor heritage.
From the impressively preserved Penshurst Place, where author Philippa Gregory helps Tony relish the fate of the grand Duke of Buckingham at the hands of the young Henry the Eighth, he travels up what used to be secret paths to Hever Castle.
Henry’s saucy courting of the Boleyn girls at Hever comes as perhaps no surprise. But Tony travels on to find out how Henry VIII’s reign brought not just fame and disaster to the women who caught his eye but also wrought huge social, political, and industrial change to the country and especially this area.
Before finishing in the town of Lewes where he can relive one of the more brutal monastic dissolutions, Tony will have uncovered treason in Henry’s court, discovered how the Weald’s iron ore deposits made it the industrial heart of Tudor England and he’ll have seen the ruthless extent of one man’s ambition – Thomas Cromwell.
