Double-bill of BBC documentaries looking at British natural history and art. 'Coast' explores the nature and history of all 9,000 miles of the British coastline, examining the ways in which we have shaped it in the past, and the ways in which it has shaped us, with contributions from historians, geologists, and geography experts. In 'A Picture of Britain', David Dimbleby explores the British landscape and the writers and artists it has inspired over the generations. Travelling to all corners of the British Isles, from the cliffs of Dover to the Highlands of Scotland, Dimbleby explores the concepts of nationhood, travel and the romantic yearning that has influenced the work of some of Britain's greatest creative minds.
