The Show

Come for a walk along Britain's windswept coastline with the people who have made their lives at the edge. Each week, Liverpool Echo journalist Laura Davis discovers a different stretch of landscape, joined by those who make it special - from a widower finding friendship through a dog walking club on the beach to the street artists revitalising a faded seaside town.
