Burnham and Berrow beaches have been chosen for shooting a film which will be shown to more than one million geography students across the globe.

MORE: Dogs banned from beaches until September.

Time For Geography will then be translated into more than 20 major languages, and used in the majority of British international schools.

The video is being developed in collaboration with the University of the West of England, near Bristol.

Sedgemoor District Council has waived its normal filming fees on the beaches throughout June.

MORE: Four nearby beaches named in Somerset’s top 10 best.

A spokesman for the district council said: “The video will be used both nationally and internationally by secondary students learning about coastal management.

“The coastline between Brean Down and Burnham provides an excellent case study, with its extensive coastal management strategy developed following the December 1981 storm and flooding.”
