5.0 out of 5 stars Up to standard. 18 Sep 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Any doubts that the "Coast" Team would not be able to maintain the high standard of the first three series are dispelled by this "Coast and Beyond" series 4. Purists may not like the fact that some programmes travel beyond the British Isles (France and Norway are visited) but the tried and tested mix of history and geography continues to both educate and entertain. Worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seaside stories to enthrall and inform 2 Aug 2009
Coast has established itself as one of the most popular factual programmes on British TV and the fourth series continues to charm, inspire and educate.
The format remains the same; a journey around the UK coastline taken in geographical segments, dipping a toe into the social, geological, historical, maritime and natural history of each area in turn. Each hour-long episode covers a variety of topics, switching between engaging expert presenters. There are usually half a dozen in-depth items and half as many snippets - in this series the shorter pieces are occasionally present by locals, explaining their craft, trade or artistic endeavour in person.
Each episode of Coast provides an interesting mix of glorious landscape photography and extremely affable, personal investigations into little-known secrets from each area. The presenters themselves offer a wide range of talents - this series is anchored by `action historian' Neil Oliver (never shy about stripping off, it seems!) with regulars Dr Alice Roberts, Hermione Cockburn and Nicholas Crane among others. There are new contributors too, and it was especially interesting for me to see wild swimmer Kate Rew taking the crew to new places off the Dover coast.

Although the format is familiar, the series producers have cleverly extended the scope of this series to keep it fresh and provide new material. So as well as the UK coast, Series Four visits further afield to the shores of Normandy and the land of the Vikings. This is an interesting twist, and one which helps to demonstrate the heritage we share with our nearest neighbours.

5.0 out of 5 stars A near perfect popular educational show 4 Sep 2009
By Blackhorse47 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
At a time when many factual programs are presented with flashy graphics, over-bearing music and dizzying camerawork, Coast presents something a beacon of hope. It manages to avoid being dumbed down by presenting just enough interesting detail at a sensible length without being too cloying in the attempt to be educational in a populist way. And best of all there's not a celebrity in sight to take us on their holidays, sorry, the journey.

Any thought that after three years of sea, sand and cliffs the format would be running out of material are put to rest to the extent that this series is perhaps the best since the first one. Sensibly the makers have spread the definition of the UK coast to include areas far away from mainland Britain such as Normandy and Norway, with the acceptable conceit that many years ago they would have shared a common coastline. This enables them to tell fascinating stories such as completing the story of the Shetland Bus by showing what happened on the other side, as well as items on the D-Day landings.

This all suggests the format can continue for a while longer. I hope so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coast and Beyond: Series Four. 8 Oct 2009
This latest instalment of the famed series by the BBC and the Open University, is possibly the best Coast series to date. In this series, the Coast team expores beyond the British Isles and instead expores the coastlines of the our Euopean neighbours. The series explores the relationship, historical links and geographical similarities, and cultural influences that we share with our neighbours across the english channel; and north sea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Rexaling & interesting 4 Oct 2010
By si
Everyone has their own views. For me,I have found this series Very, Very relaxing and very easy to watch. We have a spectactular wealth of coastline around uk & Ireland (& beyond) and this series is a great way to see it all in a really relaxed way. It is very simple, interesting & some very beautiful scenerey, it's easy going & for me it has been an ideal way to totaly wind down on an evening after demanding days at work. Usally when sequels come out to films or TV series they end up scraping the barrel But I think NOT SO with COAST!, I think that COAST 4 has actually got better and has matured very,very well with age and continues to do so. I bought series 5 as well but am not able to review that on here but will certainly be saying good things all round.

5.0 out of 5 stars A full toast to Coast! 6 Nov 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched the tv series and just had to buy for a gift for my father now living in South Africa. Scenery is beautiful, full of historical facts, a worthwhile gift to someone who enjoys watching about our landscape, the history, the countryside and the coast all rolled into one. A great value for money product!
