Mersey: Once a vital part of Britain's industrialization in Manchester and Liverpool, the Mersey bore the pollution levels to prove it. A successful clean-up campaign has now restored its ecology and made it a haven for wildlife. Paxman goes electrofishing for brown trout, scales the heights of the river's tallest bridge, and encounters the mysterious "Mersey mermaids."

Starring: Jeremy Paxman.
