Four families must adapt to life on an island, but hunger and frustration is high. The community needs to come together if they are to survive life as a 1900 fishing community.

Four families, with a longing to escape the demands of the modern world, head back over a hundred years to the turn of the 20th century. In this major new series, The 1900 Island, they are living for a month as a small Welsh fishing community on the dramatic tidal island of Llanddwyn, off the coast of Anglesey.

It’s a time of hand-to-mouth existence for the families - the Powers, the Davies, couple Kate Evans and Arwel John and the Barkers - as they come face to face with the harsh reality of one of the toughest ways to make a living in 1900 Britain.

They must adapt quickly to their new way of life but bad weather, lack of experience and limited rations lead to hunger and frustrations. Can a last-minute effort by the women save the day?
