In the Beginning

Series following the community on the Falkland Islands. In November, summer begins in the southern hemisphere and the islanders prepare for Remembrance Sunday.

The first in a series following the community on the Falkland Islands, a British territory 8,000 miles south of the UK in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean.

It is November, the beginning of summer in the southern hemisphere and the Rev Richard Hines has flown out to far-flung Pebble Island to visit Irina and bring back some fresh eggs for her mum Clara, who lives in Stanley. Famer Andrez is busy with lambing and governor Nigel Haywood leads the islanders in a Remembrance Sunday service to honour all fallen soldiers, especially those who gave their lives so that the Falklands could remain British.
