Neil Oliver's Love Letter to the British Isles
78 Great Victorian Endeavour, White Cliffs of Dover, Kent
In this episode we’re in the midst of the great Victorian engineering revolution as the dream to reconnect with Europe begins.
8,000 years ago the Storegga Slide hit and severed the British Isles from the European mainland. To thrive and prosper the new islanders had to develop a mastery of the sea, and those coming to the islands had to be determined and committed. For thousands of years the psyche of the people living on this archipelago was shaped and moulded by it’s ‘separateness’, but in the 1800’s people on both sides of the Channel began to dream of a reconnection.
