Will Millard’s River Taff adventure comes to an end next Friday
Indus Films’ three-part series, The River Taff with Will Millard, concludes next Friday, 19th February, at 7:30pm on BBC One Wales.
Writer and fisherman Will travels the length of the wild River Taff in South Wales, from its source high in the stunning Brecon Beacons to the Bristol Channel. This week he explores how the coal industry changed this beautiful landscape and its people forever.
In the last episode, Will reaches the end of his journey in South Wales. This beautiful wild river, once neglected and polluted, has now come back to life. Will goes wild swimming with a group of eccentrics trying to change the image of this forgotten river, meets retired Somali sailors drawn to Cardiff in the city’s glory days as a thriving port, and tells the story of how the industrial docks have been transformed. Finally, he sets out to catch the King of Fish, migratory salmon returning to the river where they were born.
