Alongside Crane, who will look at the geography of a region, Neil Oliver explores some fascinating human interest stories, zoologist Miranda Krestovnikoff is our guide beneath the waves, anthropologist Alice Roberts looks at what exactly makes up our coastline, and archaeologist Mark Horton digs up the hidden histories of life on our shores.

Using a combination of expert comment, contemporary storytelling and computer-generated images, our team will investigate everything from the myths and legends of Cornwall, windswept Wales, Liverpool’s maritime heritage, the scenery of Antrim, the wildlife of Scotland’s coastlines and smugglers of The Wash.
