Staffordshire Film Archive describes:

"Just over two hundred years ago the growth of Britain's waterways paved the way for the Industrial Revolution. Now they offer thousands a break from everyday life as a much loved leisure activity. This video explores the fascinating and tradition-steeped history of canals from Roman beginnings, through the golden pre-railway age - when Birmingham alone had more canals than Venice - to the modern renaissance. Experts, archive film and unique personal reminiscences reveal the changing face of canals and the boats that worked them."

Produced by Ray Johnson and Staffordshire Film Archive.
