We hope you enjoyed the free Coast Screensaver, which supported some of the series of Coast that were coproduced by The Open University and the BBC.

All journeys, though, have a natural ending and we're afraid the end of the line has been reached for the Coast screensaver.

The service which updated the content on the screensaver has been withdrawn and, as such, we have decided to retire the screensaver.

 

For further information, take a look at our frequently asked questions which may give you the support you need.
