We expected this to be a cheery travelogue with Sue cracking jokes as she worked her way along the Ganges from source to sea. But this is something more, because Sue has had a really horrible year.

She lost her dad six months ago and feels like she needs to make a pilgrimage, like millions have done before her, along the banks of this sacred river.

She wants a place where she can feel sad and let her grief bubble to the surface, be exposed and washed away.

But while this is an emotional watch, it is also fun, mainly because Sue is so great with the people she meets on the way.

Not showing in Scotland; showing on BBC2 in Wales.
