The people and the stories at the heart of the British countryside. In an edition devoted to seaside towns, John Craven is in Scarborough to sample the delights of its seafood and discover how the town makes the most of its famous bays and historic buildings, while Miriam O'Reilly is in Blackpool to see how the Illuminations still draw in the crowds even though summer is over. Elsewhere, Adam Henson reports on the decline of rural petrol stations, which are now at the same level as 1912.
