Episode Summary

The team explore what becomes of Britain's coast in winter. Nick Crane visits Cornwall, the 'storm central' of Britain's rugged coastline. Nick explores the tragic events remembered as the Penlee lifeboat disaster, the worst such tragedy within the last 60 years. But Nick also discovers that wild winter seas bring surprising benefits to this Cornish coast. Neil Oliver experiences the extraordinary Viking Fire Festival on Shetland, gaining behind-the-scenes access to investigate the area's proud Viking heritage. Far into the Atlantic, on the edge of the wild western isles of Scotland, a feral flock of sheep, untouched for thousands of years, battle to the death as winter approaches. On the isle of St Kilda, Andy Torbet throws himself into the fray as the rams fight to breed with the ewes. And Mark Horton investigates the terrifying power of winter storms to wipe small coastal communities completely off the map.moreless
