Wherry comes home to the Broads

The Wherry Ardea, which was built at Oulton Broad in 1927, has been brought back to East Anglia after spending more than 50 years in Paris.

It was launched in the presence of King George V and was used as a pleasure craft on rivers and Broads in Norfolk and Suffolk for three decades.

Broadcast on BBC Look East in October 2005, Alex Dunlop looks at the Ardea's past and future career on the Broads.
