Synopsis

Travel interest series in which Victoria Wood travels to the corners of the globe in search of the essence of the former Victorian Empire. Wood's irreverent humour shines through as she travels to far-flung former Victorian outposts, many of which share her name, in search of how people today view the days of the Empire. From Fort Victoria in Ghana, to Victoria, Nova Scotia, taking in Australia, New Zealand and many more besides, she finishes her journey in majesty at Zambia's Victoria Falls. Wood reveals her childhood fascination with the old Queen who bore her name, explores her character and family life and talks to locals in these far places about their views on being colonized by a country they'd never heard of.
