Product description

Review

A photo-filled guide to the 9,000-mile coastline of Britain and Northern Ireland, complete with a mapped region-by-region reference section for travelers.

From the Author

I'm absolutely delighted that 'COAST' has done so well and
pleased so many readers. It has certainly contributed hugely to the success
of 'COAST - The Journey Continues', the follow-up. However, I'd like to explain a couple of
things about the writing of 'COAST' in response to some of the review
comments. My brief in writing this book was to have it ready for
publication at the same time as the BBC2 TV series was broadcast. Ideally I
would have liked sight of the complete TV scripts a year in advance. But
that's not the way these series/book tie-ins work.

The COAST series was an innovative experiment, whose success was quite
unexpected. Producers had to change their minds and ideas right up to the
last moment of shooting, adapting to changes in weather, circumstances,
developing stories, etc. So I had no fixed TV schedule to write to, and had
to second-guess and fill in gaps as best I could. In the end I had about 2
months to write the entire book. Luckily I have been writing about the UK
coast for 30 years, so I had the knowledge! But that explains the
discrepancies between the content of BBC's programmes and my book.

Writing the book of the current series, 'COAST - The Journey Continues',
the producers kept me far more in the picture, so although the actual
writing time was still very condensed (about 7 weeks), book and series
reflect each other far more closely.
