This collection consists of 11 films filmed entirely from the air. Bold shots supported by a precise and informative narration. Immediate boarding for a breath-taking spectacle on the frontier between the immensity of the seas and oceans and the continent. France: the world’s number one tourist destination. The rich medley of her landscapes enhanced by a centuries-old heritage, her coastline draped in the gold of her beaches, the sheer drop of her cliffs and her carpet of forests are evidence enough. Her shores are studded with casinos, luxurious hotels and sumptuous villas, sprouting from the sands in the Roaring Twenties. Her land of legends is bejewelled with mediaeval fortresses, ancestral castles and stunning architecture. The people of the French coasts, half-human, half-marine, hungry for wide horizons. Convoys of trawlers converging on the ports of dry land. Navigators and explorers whosenames are forever engraved in the great History of France. Whether in long or close shot, the swell of the North Sea, the English Channel, the Atlantic and the Mediterranean are bewitching. They caress, and sometimes assault, nearly 3,500 km of coastline along which some 30 port towns and cities have been carefully selected.
