An Island Parish

An Island Parish

Available on BBC iPlayer
This documentary series follows a community based on the Falkland Islands, a British territory located just off the coast of South America. The episodes introduce the islanders who live 8000 miles away from the UK's mainland and the culture that has developed there over the years. The show is filmed at the beginning of their summer, which also marks the start of the Christmas festivities. In capital city Stanley, Reverend Richard Hines ministers the largest Anglican parish in the Southern Hemisphere and regularly meets the members by flying in to visit them in a small plane.
