Being a Norfolk lass, it is great to see Norfolk being used as a case study for England. The accent is authentic and not too broad; a well-chosen interview.  The map to explore different places, sites and interests of Norfolk, gives a balanced feel to discovering this part of England. However, beware of the 'flickriver' link - it contains images of Norfolk in USA (trains, ports, skyline) and not representative of Norfolk in England.
