Beau Lotto appeared in Series 2 of BBC 2’s award-winning television programme Coast, about the UK’s physical edge, broadcast in 2008.

In the programme, he considers why the light in St. Ives, Cornwall, which has attracted artists since the early 19th century, might be unique, and carries out light sensor tests to find out what makes the light so special. The premise of the argument is that the colour of illumination is dictated by the clarity of the air and the quality of the surrounding geography.
