Episode Summary

Coast embarks on its first adventure to North America as this explores British connections far offshore and surprising stories in the waters just off Britain's shoreline. Nick Crane journeys over the Atlantic to New Scotland - Nova Scotia - in Canada. He discovers how centuries-old traditions, now forgotten even in Scotland, have been kept alive in Nova Scotia. Why did Scottish settlers flood offshore to Canada 200 years ago and how well did they succeed? Plus, Tessa Dunlop reveals an untold story from the Falklands war. Miranda Krestovnikoff goes in search of Britain's oldest puffin on a beautiful but desolate isle in the Outer Hebrides. Naval historian Nick Hewitt uncovers the hidden history of the 100-year-old Nab Tower, which sits in the sea off the shores around Portsmouth. And offshore from the Isle of Wight, Coast gains unique access to one of the few locations in Britain where people can be buried at sea.moreless
