An Island at Easter

Presenter: Rev Owain Jones, Minister on the Isle of Bute.
Owain looks at the people and places of the island, tracing connections between its ancient stones and the people living there, and the message of Easter.
The quality of life for many on the island, and the sheer beauty of the place, foster an impression of transcendence and escape from ordinary life. Yet the challenges of modern living still confront its inhabitants. Owain marks Easter Sunday with stories of Bute's past and present and the strength of the human spirit.
