Seashaken Houses: A Lighthouse History from Eddystone to Fastnet

Meet the the rock lighthouses of Great Britain and Ireland. They form a ring of twenty towers built between 1811 and 1904, so-called because they were constructed on desolate rock formations in the middle of the sea.

A beautifully lyrical exploration of these amazing structures and the people who risked their lives building and rebuilding them. Tom Nancollas introduces us to those who inhabit circular rooms, and the ways in which they value emblems of our history in a changing world.
