One of your humble Devil's guilty pleasures is a little-known BBC2 programme called Coast [iPlayer link]. It's fronted by an ebullient Scot (Glaswegian, I think), Neil Oliver, who brings the almost mystical enthusiasm to the study of Britain's coastline that only a Scot could possibly embue to such a programme.
Coast has been going for some time and, if you want to know just how fantastic and diverse this wee island of ours is, I highly recommend it. They examine local rock formations, industries, engineering, history and culture in a way that makes you appreciate how amazing this country is. (And I fucking love the Scots, as I've said before.)
Watch them—they're just wee fifteen minute shorts; you won't regret it.
