In the final episode of three part travelogue Joanna Lumley’s Britain Joanna travels from North Wales to St Michael’s Mount and the West Country, ending in her hometown of London.
After stopping in the slate quarries of Blaenau Ffestiniog, Joanna heads to Carmarthen to meet Welsh singer and actor Wynne Evans.
In Cornwall she visits the legendary St Michael’s Mount, before heading to Southampton to meet a family of travelling Showpeople who have been in the fairground business for generations.
She also meets a couple who have ‘re-wilded’ their 3500-acre country estate. Ending her journey in London, Joanna tracks down 95-year-old Allan Willmott, part of the Windrush generation (people who arrived in the U.K. from Caribbean countries between 1948 – 1971), who formed a band and performed alongside artists of the day including Shirley Bassey and Cliff Richard.
