In October 2016, prolific TV and radio presenter, journalist, columnist, author and national treasure, Stuart Maconie, walked 300 miles from Jarrow to London retracing the famous Jarrow Crusade 80 years on, through a divided, complex country that echoes 1936 in many ways.

From choral evensong to curry house, from austerity to affluence, from Wearside to Westminster, through great cities and sleepy hamlets, quiet lanes and roaring motorways join him on an entertaining, impassioned, enlightening journey through Britain then and now.

Stuart is the UK’s best-selling travel writer and also hosts the Radcliffe and Maconie Show and Freak Zone on BBC Radio 6 Music. He is a former assistant editor of the NME and writer for Q, Select, Word, Mojo, The Times and The Guardian and has presented regular shows on BBC Radios 1, 2 and 4.
