Last July I spent a week on the Small Isle of Eigg, south of Skye. While we were there, the weather was rather temperamental and the islanders were getting rather excited by the prospect of a film crew arriving. The crew arrived duly with Martin Clunes to film on the island has part of Clunes's forthcoming series of Islands of Britain.
How lucky to catch the programme tonight after a day long of rather boring computer chores. How lucky also to catch exactly that episode that included Eigg. The crew stayed for four days, and while we never saw them filming all the talk across the island revolved around them and their staging of an impromtu bonfire on the beach. Unfortunately, it kept raining evening after evening, which didn't stop them though as you will see.
It's funny to see people from the week again - the guy from Glasgow with his front teeth missing, that German family who went swimming when it was freezing cold, and the piper who was very excited by Clunes's presence.
I don't know how these videos, catch-ups and various links will work if you try and access them from outside the UK - so apologies if they don't work. I also don't know how many episodes there are, but this is the bumpf for the first one:
