The Flatlands

David Dimbleby visits Constable country, a land of mists, meadows, windmills and fenland - Norfolk and Suffolk. With their wide skies and wonderful light, perhaps no other corner of this country has inspired more painters to works of genius - George Stubbs at Newmarket, Thomas Gainsborough with his pictures of the rich and famous set amidst the splendour of their country estates, and of course Constable's The Hay Wain.

Dimbleby takes to a balloon to view the flatlands, sails the Norfolk Broads in 19th century style and confronts the murder scene of Dorothy Sayers' The Nine Tailors.
