The The Border Line
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Broadcaster Eric Robson walks the border line between Scotland and England, describing points of interest on his route, recounting episodes from the region's colourful history, describing some of his adventures, discoursing on the unique character of the landscape and the people and reminiscing about his life in broadcasting. In 2004, his walks in the Borders with Alistair Moffat were captured in the ITV series Walking the Line. This compendium of history and anecdote will appeal to anyone with an interest in this little-known part of Britain.

Author Biography

Eric Robson was born in southern Scotland and has lived most of his life in Cumbria. For the last 15 years he has had a small farm in the southern Lake District where he keeps sheep. A broadcaster and television documentary maker, he got to know Alfred Wainwright uncommonly well while filming with him in the 1980s. He was executive producer of Granada's Wainwright Country and consultant for the BBC's Wainwright Walks series. He is best known as the presenter of Radio 4's Gardener's Question Time, where he sees his job as keeping the panellists from 'straying into horticultural Latin'.
