Channel 4 at 8:00pm (Other show times...)

Walking Through History

The dramatic moors and valleys of West Yorkshire are the setting for an unusual slice of the past in Tony Robinson's first walk from this new series.This evocative landscape was the home of, and inspiration for, the Brontes, the remarkable literary family that produced Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.

Over four days, Tony heads out from the Victorian wool capital of Bradford, and treks in a giant loop around what is now known as Bronte Country. From the birth of Charlotte, Emily, Anne and their brother Branwell in the Bradford suburb of Thornton, Tony traces their childhoods to the much-romanticised Bronte hub of Haworth. But the shocking reality of 1820s life in the mill town was far removed both from the tourist town of today, and from the fantasy world dreamed up by the Bronte children at their father's parsonage home.
