Probably the worst thing you can say about
is that it’s visual wallpaper; something to keep your eyes stimulated while you’re doing the ironing on autopilot or yelling at the kids. What works best is dipping in and out, picking out the interesting bits and ignoring the parts where, say, a cagouled presenter talks on the history of Brixham trawlers.
I pricked up right around the time Alice Roberts tried to explain how waves work, then simulated them in a swimming pool. It’s not the water that’s moving, something’s moving through the water, she offers up, teasingly. There’s also an enjoyable piece on the Scilly Isles and a man who runs the UK’s most remote fish and chip shop.
The team travels along the south coast of England from Bournemouth to Plymouth, where Neil Oliver explores the pricey location of Sandbanks in Poole Harbour, and investigates how a lighthouse was built on the perilous Eddystone rocks. Alice Roberts discovers the formula for the perfect sandcastle, and Nicholas Crane meets a man whose home was destroyed 40 years ago by mudslides in Lyme Regis.
