Get it on the iplayer Verdun.
I have them all recorded and watched the Norfolk one today, mainly beacause I have family in Dersingham
and have never been, its very flat!
Well, some of it is - but Norwich itself is quite up and downy - I hesitate to call it hilly as I know some of us live in really hilly areas, but here we do have some steepish slopes - my OH's student digs were up a hill with a 20% incline and is the venue for a notorious cycle race, the Gas Hill Gasp! And on the north-eastern fringe of Norwich is the wonderful nature reserve Mousehold Heath with it's amazing view over the city - a little reminiscent of the view from Fiesole over Florence, don't you think?
We live to the southwest of the city on a range of low hills which are the remains of glacial terminal moraine - there's another ridge of terminal moraine along the northern coast of Norfolk, reaching it's peak at Beacon Hill, the highest point in Norfolk http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beacon_Hill,_Norfolk .
Yes, the Brecklands and Broadlands are flat, but in Norfolk we're proud of our hills too
