Another excellent book spun from a great BBC2 series
on 13 August 2005
I've managed to watch a couple of the episodes from the BBC TV series Coast and I just had to pop into Waterstones to flick through the book.
Loads of excellent Photos, wonderful descriptions of the coast and a great companion to the TV series. It's written in a way that everyone can understand about the coastal features as well as the history, geomorphology, special features that are found in all the fascinating areas that have been visited.
The book is in two parts and the gazette at the back is a quick reminder a highlighter focusing your attention and sign posting you to web pages where you will find loads more detail on the things that grab your interest and attention.
It opens your eyes to the fascinating coast that we have, who needs to go abroad when we have so much beauty, intrigue, surprises to investigate and explore. This book is the start of what can be a fantastic adventure for you and I think that it claims that wherever you are you are only 70 miles away from the coast.
So get a copy and off you go exploring, you are guaranteed to be taken on a great journey and when you get there and have read about what you are going to see, connect to the BBC mobile information and listen to a tour of the area, download instruction.
The book is a vehicle into your Coastal Magical Mystery Tour, be it from your armchair, PC, Mobile but best of all with the wind blowing against your face or the sun lighting up the scenery.
I've already seen one place last night in Scotland a small peak that wasn't climber until 1955, can you believe it, even Victor Mildew would be flabbier gusted. So many secrets exposed but many more for you to find with the help of this book, and it's a nice light weight.
Mine is on its way from Amazon as I write.
How can you tell that I'm a frustrated geograhpy student student stuck in an IT job, as soon as that book arrives I'm going to get my boots on pack my lunch and I'm out of here. lol.
