Dame Penelope Keith (To The Manor Born, Good Neighbors, Penelope Keith's Hidden Villages, Penelope Keith At Her Majesty's Service) returns for more travels through Britain's villages armed with her trusty Batsford guides. In PENELOPE KEITH'S COASTAL VILLAGES, she's exploring an integral part of Britain's national character: its stunning coastline. Penelope seeks out the community heartbeat unique to coastal village life. From fishing and lifeboats to pleasure boating and holiday making, the sea brings both joy and danger, which Penelope covers with panache. This charming mini-series visits three distinct parts of the British coastline and contrasts what the writers of the Batsford guides discovered in the first half of the 20th century with what she sees today.
