A documentary series hosted by Nicholas Crane. Follow him as he and a team of experts including Neil Oliver, Miranda Krestovnikoff and Mark Horton, travel around the coast of Britain to find out what makes the coasts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland such an interesting place. From the White Cliffs of Dover to HMS Victory in Portsmouth, no place goes untouched from the Coast team.
Nick follows a very old tourist trail out of London and heads for Margate, via Southend on Sea. He learns why the beach has a biological effect on our stress levels. Miranda is on Shell Island in North Wales on a dusk-till-dawn camping safari to look at the pleasures that can be found in a night-time world of wildlife on our coast.
A look at how Winter affects the coastline, with Nick looking back on a lifeboat disaster in Penlee in 1981. Neil goes behind the scenes at a Viking festival in the Shetlands. Andy looks at how feral sheep flock together. Mark looks at the impact storms have on smaller families. Richard captures which creatures make Margate their home for the colder months.
