Coast
Season 9
Coast returns for its ninth season with fascinating new stories from the shoreline. Everything is fair game for the series' team of expert hosts - history, people, wildlife, geography, geology, archaeology - as long as there is a good tale to be discovered and shared. While the series spends most of its time in Britain this season, it hops over to France as the team explores stories on both sides of the English Channel, including the tragic wreck of a World War I troop ship and the secret life of Mont St. Michel. The series also embarks on its first adventure to North America, travelling to Nova Scotia where some long-forgotten Scottish traditions are still maintained.
