Series following the Falkland Islands' community. The Rev Hines prepares for Palm Sunday, while Hattie and Kevin cook up a feast for their end-of-season party.
It's autumn in the southern hemisphere and the Rev Richard Hines is preparing for Palm Sunday. This means an expedition to one of his favourite beaches to collect tussock grass to make 100 crosses by hand, to give out in church on Easter Sunday. Hattie and Kevin Kilmartin are cooking up a feast of reindeer kebabs, upland goose terrine, sea trout and diddle dee bellinis - all local produce - to make their end-of-season thank you party go with a swing.
On Saunders Island, the Pole-Evans family, including daughters Louise and Carol, are getting ready to send their sheep off to market. But loading them onto the Concordia Bay ferry which will carry them safely back to the mainland is a major operation requiring all hands to the pump. It's HM the Queen's birthday, which the islanders always celebrate with a parade and a reception at Government House, hosted by interim governor John Duncan who was last here 17 years ago.
