Sea adventurers Timothy Spall and his wife Shane take their barge to three different countries and the Isle of Man. From Whitehaven, where Spall learns about the pirate John Paul Jones, they steam over to Douglas to visit his son, actor Rafe Spall, who is there to work on BBC Two’s The Shadow Line. Next they visit a city Tim loves dearly, Belfast, and a special pub he says is ‘the finest drinking establishment in the English-speaking world’. Finally, it’s across to Portpatrick and Scotland, as they clock up some serious nautical mileage in their circumnavigation of the British Isles.
