Gower - Episode 1
A series witnessing a year in the life of the Gower Peninsula. The Gower Society goes on a surveillance mission, taking aerial photos of the caravan sites and local businesses.
The wild beaches of the Gower peninsula are a magnet for over three million tourists a year. Only minutes from the industry of Swansea and Port Talbot, Gower is still a secret and private place the locals like to keep to themselves. This series witnesses a year in the life of Gower and some of the people whose families have been there for generations.
In this episode, the Gower Society goes on a surveillance mission - taking aerial photos of the caravan sites and local businesses to make sure they haven't made any changes without permission. Understandably this doesn't go down well with the locals. Most Gower farmers have had to diversify to survive and Rob Morgan's sheep have been replaced by Christmas trees and reindeer.
Local surfing hero PJ looks back over the accident that nearly killed him, a caravan arriving at its site causes chaos in the village and father and son butchers Paul and Phillip Tucker are talking at cross purposes.
Any episode, after it has been first broadcast, is available for the duration of the entire series at www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer.
