An expression of unbridled creativity, Rosslyn Chapel was carved 500 years ago by master stonemasons brought in from all over Europe. It was their patron's way of trying to secure his place in heaven. Every square inch of stone inside and much of the outside stonework is covered in elaborate carvings, helping to make this one of the most enigmatic medieval chapels in the world - linked to the Knights Templar and now star of the Da Vinci Code. Perched on a rocky mound just seven miles south of Edinburgh, Rosslyn Chapel is a truly rare architectural gem made legendary by its stunning stone carvings. This is the story of its creation, of its distinctiveness and of its enduring legend. Presently undergoing major restoration, the producers have been granted unprecedented access to the ongoing work and the stone carvings themselves as well as the legends they keep. But what do the carvings actually mean? What was the inspiration that drove these stonemasons to the edge of their artistic ability? How and why did they create carvings that, until now, could not even be seen? Art historian Lady Helen Rosslyn, the chapel's guardian and its greatest fan, will take us on a magical journey into the world of these medieval stones.

Brett travels South the laid-back town of Knysna, where he tries his hand at shore fishing. He resigns himself to newspaper-wrapped fish and chips by the lighthouse. He stops by Mitchell's brewery, a beer producer that beat the craft beer craze by some 30 years, and one of the few local companies that competes in the larger brotherhood of beers in the market. Brett goes onto explore the streets of Knynsa, and speaks with members of the local Rastafarian community. He wraps things up with a visit to Moog, a tattoo artist and the epitome of the 'take it easy' Knysna philosophy.
