A momentous day for Edie and Mick Atkins from Portobello in Willenhall in the industrial West Midlands - it's their first ever trip to the seaside and it's being recorded by a film crew from local news programme ATV Today. Joy and pleasure abound, particularly from Edie, who goes as far as getting her feet wet, as they find out what they've been missing during a trip to Llandudno.
