Specialist TV producer Serious Leisure TV has announced that it is returning a specialist inland waterways programme to the air, after a break of over a year.

UK Boating - inland waterways is a 30 minute programme, dealing with inland waterways topics, and it is intended to evolve gradually into a bright and newsy presentation with up-to-date content and information.
"We produced a series of this programme some time ago," said Executive Producer Chris Gosling, "and had a terrific amount of interest from all kinds of inland waterways boat owners and users, especially from people who love Britain's canals and inland waterways."
"Over the course of time, we'll be filming all over the canal and inland waterway network - including hugely popular areas like the Thames and the Norfolk Broads, and we'll be looking at the hire industry as well as boat ownership in its varied forms."
"Everyone with all kinds of news dealing with inland waterways topics is welcome to contact us," added Giles Meehan, the programme's editor. "Our news slots will also be available online, and we encourage as many people as possible to get in touch with us!"

The first programmes in the new series of UK Boating are sponsored by River Canal Rescue, who operate The National Marine Breakdown and Recovery Service for boats on the inland waterways - an outstanding and successful business enabling boat owners to cruise with confidence anywhere on Britain's waterways.
