Miriam Margolyes narrates a tour of the United Kingdom. Miriam guides viewers through Brighton by way of the pier and the promenade.

This episode's destination is England's south coast and Old Ocean's Bauble - better known as Brighton. Miriam Margolyes guides us through the stylish city by way of George IV's pleasure palace, the pier and the promenade, and a nod to the nudist beach. Abba put in an appearance, as do
music hall charladies Gert and Daisy, various mods and rockers - and a man up a pole. With Pride, the Brighton Festival and the Burning of the Clocks setting the scene, we are in for a colourful and riveting tour.
