Coast Australia, TV review: The sweeping aerial shot is matched with the pub-ready fact

By Will Dean for The Independent Britain's coastline is – according to the good folks at the World Resources Institute – 12,429km long. Which places us 16th in the world. Below coastal heavyweights like Canada and Chile, sure, but kicking seven shades of sand out of India, Vietnam and France (7,330, the massive bunch of perdants côtières). In fact, thanks to the insanely complicated way in which coastlines are measured (Google: "the coastline paradox" for minutes of fun), different measure would give us the 12th longest coast– ahead of Brazil. Australia Coastline Alas, in both measures we're quite literally outflanked by Australia, which has either 66,000 or 25,000 kilometres of the stuff. Which means that, as we got eight series of Coast filmed here (give or take a few Continental excursions), then we can expect er... 24 series of Coast Australia (BBC2). This is just for one series though – and it's beautiful. How could it not be? Coast's signature visual move, the sweeping aerial shot is matched with the pub-ready fact (the Great Barrier Reef is spread over a larger area than the UK and everybody's happy. This first episode, covering the sparsely populated Kimberley, in north-western Australia, featured some gigantic scenery, took in ancient footprints in Australia's dinosaur coast, horizontal waterfalls in Talbot Bay (long story), the settlers' abuse of the Aborigines in the pearl trade and dozens of other stories. This was all, naturally, interspersed with some HD helicopter camera-work, the world's most expensive form of visual punctuation. It's visually stunning, never uninteresting. You probably could make 24 series and still have people watching.

  • Things are working out really well for us in NZ and I am more than happy for my comments to be posted on your website, I meant what I said regarding my positive view of your company and I would like people to know. There are so many companies offering the same kind of service, it’s hard to know who to trust and we had OE recommended by a friend and I would recommend to anyone without a second thought.
    – Sam Whittam, New Zealand
  • Thanks so much for all of your help and support with my application. Everyone there has been so responsive every time we’ve contacted you, it really does make a difference. I should refer our estate agent back in Edinburgh to you for some tips on customer communication! And we certainly would recommend to anyone thinking of making the move to contact the team at OE.
    – James Cooke, New Zealand
  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.
    – Graeme and family, Australia
  • Currently we have been staying in Thailand since before Christmas and in 5 weeks we travel to Australia to arrive at the same time as our personal effects. We can’t wait! Again – many thanks to everyone for everything!
