Deserting the Island. The population on the beautiful Hebridean Island of Canna has fallen to just 11. We talk to the families who are coming... and going.

And, 'zombie' hotels, high taxes and a failing economy - is it surprising that Irish hotels are closing at the rate of one a week? But there could be a glimmer of hope on the horizon...

Plus, more people than ever are choosing to holiday in a tent. So is there an art to being a successful camper?

Peter White presents.
