Spec­tac­u­lar Bri­tain

Let's Talk - - DIARY DATES -

Why does Neil think the TV se­ries Coast was so pop­u­lar? He says it re­minded peo­ple of how spec­tac­u­lar Bri­tain can be and of how much his­tory has un­folded here.

“I think the mu­sic, I think the pho­tog­ra­phy, I think the fact that there was a lot of aerial pho­tog­ra­phy in it … it gave peo­ple a view of Bri­tain which was quite thrilling,” he says.

“I think the fact that it was spread across five per­son­al­i­ties rather than just one was also part of what made it.

“It added to the sense that Coast was a pro­gramme of great va­ri­ety – a great va­ri­ety of land­scapes, a great va­ri­ety of sto­ries and five pre­sen­ters, so the whole thing felt as if it was lively and it kept on chang­ing – much like the coast does.”
