Neil Oliver travels to the majestic Faroe Islands to discover how romance blossomed for British soldiers and Faroese women during the Second World War's 'Operation Valentine'. Neil begins his island hopping journey at Glensanda, the site of Europe's biggest super-quarry, which provides the rock to make the roads of Britain roll. He also searches for sea eagles, recently reintroduced to the island of Canna.
