LIVING CHANNEL – Sundays from 12 June, 8.30pm
It is a startling fact that the UK is made up of about 6,000 different islands, and this landmark series sets out to explore the most fascinating yet unfamiliar ones. Martin Clunes visits some of these beautiful but remote communities, shedding new light on their history, culture, flora and fauna and guides viewers through amazing landscapes and seascapes, meeting colourful locals along the way. The series showcases all sorts of island dwellers – from people who live off the land, to the mega rich who use their islands to escape the paparazzi. Martin also discovers some remarkable stories of British folklore, with tales of smugglers, pirates, wizards and saints.
