Coast returns for a brand new series with fresh discoveries both around home shores and far beyond. In this first adventure, the team explores surprising stories on both sides of our shallowest, narrowest and busiest seaway - the English Channel. Nick Crane is on the Channel's French coast to experience the secret life of Mont St Michel. a rocky outcrop which attracts over a million tourists a year. Neil Oliver uncovers the tragic tale of the wreck of the troop ship SS Mendi. Why did no-one save more than 600 South African soldiers who drowned in the Channel while heading to France during the First World War to fight for the British Empire? Mark Horton reveals how some two centuries ago, French mapmakers unwittingly gave birth to Britain's Ordnance Survey. Miranda Krestovnikoff is on patrol with the 'Referees of our Seas' - the sea-borne inspectors who, backed up by the Royal Navy, must police the international fishing fleets who compete for catches in the Channel.moreless
