In addition a glimpse into contemporary island life will be explored throughout the seasons.What it really means to live on a 'real' island through the various difficulties encountered, the inevitable heartaches but also the beauty and the sense of community that only island life can offer. Episode One will cover school days, blow-ins and a wedding.
