Trivia

Series 1-6 concentrated on a specific geographical region of the UK's coast (and later the coast of neighbouring countries). From Series 7 onwards, a topic was chosen and presenters reported on that topic from random locations, rather than those concentrated in a region. 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.
