In Tonga and Kiribati, John Pickford reflects on centuries of foreign exploitation of the Pacific. He learns what links Captain Cook to Brigitte Bardot, and the tuna to the whale.
On the southwest coast of Ireland, Vincent Dowd explores an odd historical anomaly - the town of Castlebearehaven, which as a 'Treaty Port', stayed British even after Irish independence in 1922. For 16 more years, it remained a vital strategic asset to the Royal Navy and Royal Artillery, and a lasting reminder of the relationship with the United Kingdon.
