The Thames has been a highway, a frontier and an attack route; it has been a playground and a sewer, a source of water and a source of power. Every stretch has its own character, atmosphere and stories. "Thames: Sacred River" explores the river from source to sea. Peter Ackroyd, bestselling author of "London: The Biography", tells the story of the river and the people who have lived on and by it over the centuries. In the third and final part, "Shadows and Depths", Ackroyd turns his attention to the river as a source of pleasure and healing, to the poetry and art that have been inspired by it, to the scenes that mark the end of its journey.
