I suppose I could Google a bit and find the answer, but I'm being rather lazy right now :)

In movies and tv shows shot in England, I see white zig-zag lines along the edges of the road. What do these lines signify?

You find the white zig-zag lines around pedestrian crossings and other similar areas. They mean absolutely no parking, setting down or overtaking!

You also get yellow ones around entrances to schools, which mean the same thing. Yellow is more of a "no" colour than white :)
