Coast Great Guides Tessa Dunlop and Neil Oliver present the ultimate guide to the Cornish coast, from the River Tamar to Tintagel Castle, as they discover what makes the stretch so unique. As well as selecting some of the best Coast stories from the past 10 years, Tessa takes a ride on a variety of boats to learn the untold secrets of the Cornish shores. The presenters go line fishing with a local Looe fisherman, explore serpentine rock on The Lizard with a leading geologist, uncover a story of tragedy at sea, and find out what it is like to live in the storm-hit harbour of Porthleven

No mention
of the raw sewage outlets in any of the programmes. I wonder why?

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 Report Abuse

Neil yes - Nick no.
Nick Crane has a speaking style best used in a pulpit. Bring back Neil I say!
