Coast Australia -- BBC2, Wednesday 9.10pm
Viewers will be familiar with the original series of this fantastic programme, Coast, which took you around the shores of the British Isles, telling you the maritime, ecologocial and social history of the coast and the communities that live along it.
There is plenty of material for the Australian verison which has the sixth longest coastline in the world. Presenter Neil Oliver starts off in northwest of Australia, while next week's leg takes us to Sydney. The programme is preceded at 9pm with a short film from the original Coast series, featuring the Isle of Wight.
