This programme was sensational as historical/cultural geography. It’s on again on Wednesday, at 00.00 and/or is availabe on i-player http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01nyz3p

‘Storyville: Made from over 100 years of BFI archive footage, From the Sea to the Land Beyond offers a poetic meditation on Britain’s unique coastline and the role it plays in our lives. With a soundtrack specially created by Brighton-based band British Sea Power, award-winning director Penny Woolcock’s film offers moving testimony to our relationship to the coast – during wartime, on our holidays and as a hive of activity during the industrial age.’
