TBV: Salmon Run With Jack Charlton

On ‘Salmon Run,’ Charlton is the presenter, tour guide, and star, while Francis is the director and producer. Along the way, Charlton encounters a wide range of characters along the river banks – from the Queen Mother’s ghillie at Balmoral to a shopkeeper in Lismore. He is equally at home with them all. He narrates the scenes with Attenboroughian gravitas. And, of course, he fishes. Sometimes he catches something, sometimes he doesn’t. His boundless love for the sport is instantly infectious.
