Walking The Plank

Produced by Pier Productions for BBC Radio 4, written & presented by Past Preservers expert Dr Kathryn Ferry.

Historian Dr Kathryn Ferry finds out what is motivating would-be pier builders at a time when our world has changed, and when extreme weather events and rising sea levels make the idea of building into the North Sea seem a crazy idea. She discovers some of the trials and tribulations of building a pier from scratch. By tuning into modern needs and desires as well as providing a sense of nostalgia.
