Great TV series – Britain's Treasure Islands


Available on BBC iPlayer is a great BBC 4 TV series called “Britain’s Treasure Islands“. Explorer Stewart McPherson visits all the UK’s overseas territories. In this first episode, his visit to the Chagos Archipelago is extraordinary, including stunning footage of coconut crabs.

This TV series focuses on flora and fauna. I should mention that the recent political history of the island chain is rather unsettling.
