    At the start of the 1700s we had the sickest Royals in Europe. An enterprising doctor began to peddle the notion that the sea water in Scarborough was the cure. And so began our love affair with the British seaside. Travelling from Blackpool to West Wittering, Travis finds donkeys and Dracula, Austen's satire and Brighton Rock's razor gangs, mods and eco-tourism, Billy Butlin and Basil Fawlty and discovers that English attitudes to just about everything - class, humour, modernism and identity - were forged by our relationship with the seaside.
