A new six-part series exploring Norfolk and Suffolk narrated by Bill Nighy will hit our screens next month. 

The Channel Five series will feature locals living and working across the region – including those harvesting farmland, traditional town traders and those working in the tourist trade. 

Its Radio Times listing says: "It begins off the coast of Cromer, aboard one of the seaside town's last remaining crab boats.

"It's skippered by Richard Mathews, who's hoping to have caught enough of the critters to provide supper for 100 wedding guests."

Other lives featured will include those in Suffolk, taking a look at the dingy races on Oulton Broad, a vegetable trader at a market in Sudbury and the ancient Walberswick ferry crossing.

Nighy is one of the UK's most famous actors and has starred in hit films such as Love Actually and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Kate Ansell, Channel Five and Paramount+ commissioning editor, said: "The beautiful landscape of the Norfolk and Suffolk region makes this series a real feast for the eyes."

The first episode is scheduled for 8pm on Wednesday, September 6.
