Hunstanton to Dover

Coast, Series 1 Episode 12 of 13

East Anglia - a stretch of coast fighting a constant battle to survive the pounding seas. But it wasn't always like that; in our distant past, there was no coast here.

Alice Roberts finds evidence of our ice-age landbridge to Europe. Nicholas Crane meets a modern day King Canute, fighting to keep his home from falling prey to the sea, while Neil Oliver uncovers an eye-witness account from the heart of the Battle of Trafalgar. All that plus a colourful celebration of our love affair with the humble beach hut.
