Episode 5 (of 5): The Boat is Waiting

The River Thames has run softly through Piers Plowright's largely unplanned life. In this five-part series, he visits different points along its course where his life has crossed the great river.

Piers' pilgrimage along the river reaches its conclusion in south-west London, where the Thames becomes tidal and where he lived with his young family. He visits Eel Pie Island and meets Walter De La Mare's grandson.

Produced by Alan Hall
A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 4.
