Trivia

Series 1 started at the white cliffs of Dover and progressed in a clockwise fashion around the coast of the Great Britain (with a side trip to Northern Ireland). Series 2 again started at Dover but subsequent episodes have not followed series 1 in circumnavigating the UK coast, instead choosing seemingly random areas for each episode. See more »

Refreshing, one of the best television programmes in recent years
14 July 2007 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This show is a great fusion of mainly Geography and then History and Biology.

Its a great way to get a glimpse of one of the best coastlines worldwide, a tour of Britain.

Neil Oliver presents, a real enthusiast, with the help of faces such as anatomy lecturer Alice Roberts, also Miranda Krestovnikoff and geographer Nicholas Crane.

This is a fantastic documentary show and if geography is one of your favourite subjects, this is great television.

Thank the BBC for coming up with the goods.
