Uncle Davey’s Herts Content, #5 “On fish and watercress”

Original playout date: 26 February 2008
Duration: 11:22

“On this spot, 40 years ago, I got clawed by a tiger. Happy memories!

This is a walk along the Grand Union Canal and a discussion of how species get their names and some of the things that we can see along the canal.”

I fondly remember David Sands (who is still alive incidentally and long may he remain so). There are many catfish speacies and in fact about one in seven vertebrates is a catfish. So as you can imagine the naming became not that easy in the time.

Quote of the clip: “This is England”
