Coast: The Great Guide: Our North Sea Coast Neil Oliver and Tessa Dunlop continue their comprehensive guide to Britain's coastline, this time turning attention to the North Sea coast, a stretch that takes in two nations, and is bordered by a pair of huge estuaries, the Forth in Scotland, and the Humber in England. Neil sheds light on a military shipbuilding project in Rosyth, and heads to the island of Inchmickery to investigate a bird colony with a difference. From there, he tells a tragic story that still haunts the fishing village of Eyemouth, and then visits the holy island of Lindisfarne to make a dramatic archeological discovery

An amazing trip

This is a wonderful trip around the coast, such an interesting and informative program it makes you want to experience all these remote and interesting places, great presenters, and not a single so called celebrity in sight....bliss Well done BBC2

The production style is incredibly irritating. I fast forward five or six minutes to avoid the "great guide" preamble only to find it is repeated in some way every ten minutes and then summarised at the end. It treats the audience as idiots.

Coast:The Great Guide

We always enjoyed original Coast but The Great Guide has a bizarre edit format. It is repetitive and disjointed. A low brow magazine style which lacks substance and continuity.

What was the music played during the opening sequence about the launch of the row round Britain?

Music in secret paths to hidden treasures

Does anyone know the awe inspiring music which accompanies the cape wrath scenes in this episode? (Series 9) - you would make my year

Nick Crane

As much as I find Coast interesting, why does Nick Crane speak in that ridiculous manner?
King Billy   5:06pm Sat 1 Nov

Neil yes - Nick no.

Nick Crane has a speaking style best used in a pulpit. Bring back Neil I say!

Miss Neil Oliver

I miss Neil Oliver, sadly I find Nicholas Crane dull.
