Arriving at Brownsea
Lucky scouts from all over the world have gathered on Brownsea Island to celebrate 100 years of scouting. We were with them, to share their day. Watch our film to see the scouts setting foot on the island.
Scouts around the world are marking the centenary of the scouting movement.
From Australia to Zambia, wherever there are scouts there are celebrations but the centre of attention is a special event on Brownsea Island, in Dorset - the location of the first scouting expedition 100 years ago.
Hundreds of scouts took the ferry from Poole over to Brownsea Island to take part in the celebrations.
It's a huge honour for those who were specially selected. A chance for them to meet new friends and find out how scouting differs in other countries and cultures.
We hear the thoughts and feelings of the scouts as they meet each other for the first time and discuss what being a scout means to them. We follow them as they board the ferry and are welcomed to the Island before finding their campsite and receiving their special centenary scout wear.
