Bronte Country

Programme celebrating the British countryside. Ben Fogle journeys through the Bronte Country in Yorkshire, meeting poet Char March along the way.

Ben Fogle goes on a journey through the Bronte Country in Yorkshire.

After a bracing bike ride on the famous moors, Ben meets poet Char March, who gives Ben a masterclass in poetry writing. Ben returns the favour by commissioning Char to write a poem based on his journey.

The literary theme continues at Heptonstall, where Ben visits the grave of American poet Sylvia Plath. He discovers that her famously tempestuous marriage to Ted Hughes contrasts with the obscurity of her final resting place.

Ben ends his journey back on the moors, as Char recites her Country Tracks poem.
