Narrow Escapes Episode 7, 7 May 2024, Channel 4



Narrow Boat

In the seventh episode of Narrow Escapes, viewers will be taken on a journey through the diverse and vibrant community of people from all walks of life who have chosen to call the UK’s canal network home. From retirees seeking freedom to young people escaping the cost-of-living crisis, the series offers an insightful look at modern canal life.

In this episode, airing on Channel 4 on Tuesday 7 May, we will catch up with yoga instructor May, who will be cruising to the boating facilities to put the finishing touches on her rooftop decking. Musician Joel will be selecting a location for his Midlands gig and beginning promotions, while baker Jo in the Peak District prepares for the opening of the spring season and continues to work on her cookbook.

The episode will also feature the work of the Canal and River Trust, with Taz and Shashi taking their litter boat to Birmingham’s canals, where they will meet volunteers from the Wild in Birmingham project, who have transformed towpaths with an orchard and herb garden. Taz will also lead a social prescribing walking group to promote healthy lifestyles and improve mental health.

Narrow Escapes provides a unique perspective on narrowboat living, exploring the perks and challenges faced by those who embrace this alternative lifestyle. From stunning natural scenery to boat maintenance, the series presents a snapshot of community and resilience on the waterways.


In recent episodes, viewers have been introduced to a range of individuals and families, each with their own reasons for choosing life on the canals. We have met a father and son running a floating pizzeria, a solo boater embarking on an adventure, and a young woman who sold her house to fulfil her dream of living on a narrowboat. Narrow Escapes captures the allure of canal life and the sense of community it fosters, offering a window into the diverse and fascinating lives of those who call the canals home.

Airdate: Tuesday 7 May 2024, 4.00 pm on Channel 4
