About this book

A beautifully illustrated, in-depth companion to BBC TWO's BAFTA-winning series "Coast". It tells the fascinating stories of our own magnificent coastline and, for the first time, goes further afield to explore those of our neighbours, too. Steve Evanson, the producer of the television series, is our guide to great coastal landmarks, such as Blackpool's Tower and Illuminations, St Michael's Mount in Cornwall and the enormous Great Laxey Water Wheel on the Isle of Man.

He also investigates local stories and events, including Brighton's little-known silent-movie industry, the mysterious collapse of the Tay Bridge in 1879 and Spike Island - the 'Irish Alcatraz'. What's more, this book looks beyond the shores of the British Isles towards the coastlines of northwest Europe and northern France, which are inextricably tied to our own through trade, war, culture and geology. How can the crumbling white cliffs of Normandy help us to understand the erosion of our own chalk walls? What do Norwegian fiords and Scottish lochs have in common? And what impact did the Vikings have on the British coast?

"Coast and Beyond" provides a wealth of information about the landscape, history and geography of our coastal regions, as well as maps and practical information for visitors, so that you, too, can discover the secrets of our coast...and beyond.

Biography

Steve Evanson has been the series producer of Coast since it started in July 2004, and has played a crucial part in helping to create the show and research the stories. Steve did much of the original journey with presenter Nick Crane, meeting the people who live and work on our shoreline and experiencing its landscape at first-hand. Steve began his television career making programmes for the Open University, producing the hit series Rough Science and Hollywood Science for BBC TWO, BBC THREE's Lab Rats, as well as Time Flyers, a series on aerial archaeology, for BBC TWO. Steve was also the series producer of BBC ONE's Countryfile. He is passionate about walking and lives in Birmingham with his partner, Kathryn.
