This programme showcases 20 locations along the way of one of the world’s most iconic historical monuments, including the Jaiyuguan Fortress – once the gateway into China of the ancient Silk Road trading-route. It charts both the more familiar image of The Great Wall, and explores some of the lesser known areas of the Wall, providing the audience with an all-encompassing perspective.

This event is in aid of Uplyme Community Sponsorship, embarking on a Government scheme to resettle a Family from Syria in the Lyme Regis-Uplyme area and raising money for their support.
