Coast continues to uncover the secrets of our shores, through untold tales of explorers from as
far apart as Cornwall and Australia; it reveals little-known gems, including a coastal walk that
takes in the history of Britain; investigates the clandestine sex trade that scandalised Victorian
Britain and decimated the Royal Navy; discovers how Greenwich became the global centre of
sea navigation and reveals what becomes of our coast in winter.
Coast also crosses the Atlantic to find out why Nova Scotia, in Canada, appealed to its Scottish
settlers, and it ventures to the French channel coast to unearth its connection with the birth of
Britain’s Ordnance Survey maps.
Nick Crane is joined by a multitude of experts including Neil Oliver, Tessa Dunlop, Mark Horton,
Andy Torbet, Ruth Goodman, Adam McIntosh, Helen Arney, Miranda Krestovnikoff and
Nick Hewitt as they explore the rapport, past and present, between land and sea.
