I ordered this because I liked the History of Scotland so much. This one is good too. I think the thing that makes his work so good is the fact that he is interested in the same things the general public is interested in. He asks questions we would ask. The quality is great as usual and the other presenters are interesting and funny and make it a joy to watch.

Great aerial photography of UK coast and other countries coasts that influenced UK such as Ireland, France, Norway, Denmark, Tell interesting historical stories of the area being explored in each episode as told by several different correspondents. They look at sealife above and below, coastal geology and tides, historical sites and villages, industrial/business changes over time. Relate unique features and occupations of coastal communities.

I wish this was the entire series. My family and I have been watching the series on our region-free dvd. I picked this up (mistakenly), thinking this was the whole series in a compiled form. It isn't. It's just select episodes. Disappointing. If you don't mind not seeing the series in it's entirely you might enjoy this selection of episodes. Granted not every episode in the original series is awe inspiring, I just prefer to see the whole thing not just the series cherry picked.

What is the series about? The coast of England/Britain and the history and culture of the coast. There is lots of fantastic photos, stories and science as well as interesting tales of historic events. Each episode talks about half a dozen things as the narrators journey slowly around the coast.

Overall this is a great series which deserves to be watched. The photography and educational value is high. I just stopped buying abridged stuff years ago and hope that a full complete unabridged edition will also be produced.

Great production, great stories, very good talent. It's the best way to visit the UK coast without actually being there.

Would recommend this to keep in collection. Came through quickly and have no trouble watching it even though it is out of zone for us.

If you like geography, and are interested in the British Isles and surrounding region, I think you'll love this series. It seems to be a "best of" compilation, with most, if not all, of the "And Beyond" season included, as well as some highlights from past years. The BBC spent some money on the series and it shows. Super graphics, used for educational effect instead of glitz. An enthusiastic group of presenters. Gosh, I wish I could go see these places for myself. Maybe, someday ....
