A ten-part natural history of Britain and Ireland
Presented by Julian Pettiier 5: Time and Tide
The British coastline is always on the move. In the past, entire forests were overwhelmed as the sea level rose, setting these islands apart within their 10,000 mile-long frontier with the sea. Today, in response to the rhythm of the tides, wildlife flourishes in this restless no-man's land. Choughs and brambling glean the shores of Kerry; waders mass on the mudflats of Morecambe Bay, while, in a rocky Cornish cove, holiday-makers discover a menagerie of creatures in this rockpool world between the tides. Music by EDWARD WILLIAMS Produced by ROGER R. JONES Executive producer PETER CRAWFORD BBC Bristol (R)
