THE WIND IS SHIFTING: EUROPE’S COASTS ARE DISCOVERING THEMSELVES
The six-part documentary series sails, steams, glides and navigates along six stretches of European coast – each on a ship that is characteristic of the region. The six cruises discover the specific maritime characteristics of the respective coastal regions. In the scenically spectacular surroundings, quaint coastal towns, old and new harbor facilities, lighthouses, handicraft traditions as well as innovative ideas in dealing with the maritime heritage come to life.
Now is the right time to get to know the picturesque, but also contrasting and exciting coastal regions: For centuries, the maritime heritage has given the region and its inhabitants their identity. But these cultures are changing. Maritime structures, flora and fauna, seaman’s yarn and special rituals, activities and skills are changing at the dawn of the 21st century. Europe’s maritime heritage is at a turning point. The series discovered this wind of change in France, England, Norway, Italy, northern Spain and Germany.
