In this episode, we take a look at seaside towns. Often portrayed in books and films as being a unique combination of pleasure and danger, the modern day coastal town carries a lot of its past alongside the challenges of the current day.
Associate Professor, Dr Tom Sykes & Dr Louis Netter from the University of Portsmouth have collaborated to produce a book called ‘Coast Of Teeth’, exploring Britain’s seaside towns through words and pictures. You’ll hear how they used a method called ‘psychogeography’ and discover some surprising facts about coastal communities around the world.
