Format: DVD
One of the most entertaining shows of 2005 has now made its way onto DVD and once more the viewer can lose themselves in the wonder of the U.K., as a series of experts voyage around the cooastline of this isle. This epic-series, which is accompanied by a book by Christopher Somerville, takes in twelve hour-long episodes focusing on the British coastline: 'Dover to Exmouth: The Frontline'; 'Exmouth to Bristol: The Wild West'; 'Bristol to Cardigan Bay: Times and Tides'; 'Cardigan Bay to the Dee: The Travellers Coast'; 'Liverpool to Solway Firth: Shifting Sands'; 'The Northern Ireland Coast: The Troubled Coast'; 'West Coast of Scotland and Western Isles: Islands and Inlets'; 'Cape Wrath to Orkney: Life on the Edge'; 'John O'Groats to Berwick: The Working Coast'; 'Berwick to Whitby: The Forgotten Coast'; 'Robin's Hood Bay to The Wash: The Inventive Coast'; & 'The Wash to Dover: The Vanishing Coast.'
The voyage is undertaken by several experts, the principal presenter Nicholas Crane (Map Man) is supported by a team of experts including historian Neil Oliver (Two Men in a Trench), archaeologist Mark Horton (Time Flyers), zoologist Miranda Krestovnikoff (Hidden Treasure) & anatomist/archaeologist/flame-hairerd uber-vixen Alice Roberts (Time Team). The voyage around the UK's coastline shows us not only the present day, but flips into the history of the country - whether taking up specific historical stories, alluding to the climate changes that formed this isle, or exploring the natural phenemona & wild-life.

The series is real value for money, the photography is brilliant and the insights into the biological and social aspects of the UK coastline is uplifting. As someone who no longer lives in Britain this brought back terrific memories. There are a couple of irritations such as the introduction of the team members at the beginning of every episode and sometimes the commentary sometimes appears to be coming from school teachers, but this does not mar this terrific project and series.

I got hooked on the first series, after buying the dvd set for only 11gb. Seeing Coast season 2 on Amazon.co.uk, I had to get it, but wondered why they would do the coast of the UK again, and if it would be as good. This season has the same crew, this time the dark haired scottish guy (sorry I cant think of the names)is hosting, unbrella man does the geography stories. dosnt seem as rushed as the first season, but they had to get a lot cramed into that season.

Like the first season it is full of interesting information, including the first attempt at a England - France tunnel in 1880, the make up of the white chalk cliffs, sea habitats, beach side resorts, ect. Series 2 contains 8, one hour episodes on 3 DVDs. Well worth the price.

But living in the midlands these days, I miss the sea terribly. Watching the Coast series is a real treat and makes my longing for the sea even stronger. There are so many miles of astoundingly beautiful coastline round England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland (about 12,000 miles I think they said when you add in all the twiddly bits and islands) that the series could have been twice as long and my attention wouldn't have faltered for a moment. And it's not just the beauty of the coastline that recommends this series - there's the sea itself in all its moods and tempers, the marine wildlife and the history. I've no doubt that I'll watch these DVDs many times. There is really only one thing I can think that would improve the programmes and that is subtitles. I can think of several occasions when they would have been useful, for example, when the zoologist, Miranda was diving with seals and it was very difficult to understand what she was saying in her diving suit, when the geographer, Nick was speaking over the clatter of a fish-finger conveyor belt, when the archaeologist/anthropologist, Mark was speaking in a Butlins holiday camp disco. Even without the subtitles though, it's mostly quite easy to understand what's said.

Highly recommended.

This is much better than Coast 2. Some of the places visited were really interesting and the anecdotal facts presented really put a lot of things into perspective. For instance, did you know Christopher Columbus visited Ireland before his epic voyage? All of this information put a lot of things into context for me. All in all a great show.
However, a few things spoilt it for me. Firstly, a major problem was the overbearing background music especially when there was dialogue going on at the same time - that really irritated. Second, a minor one, was the over-enthusiatic presenters' obvious continual false sense of awe, etc. This does tend to insult the audience, although they did seem to calm down in a few episodes. The third is that pretentious umbrella carried by a presenter.
Nevertheless, well worth a viewing and buying.

Series one was the benchmark, simply sumptious in presentation and picture quality.

Series two was a poor relation, let down on graphic and picture quality, as well as DVD presentation/chapters.

Series three was better than two but not quite as good as one.

Regardless grab all three.
