Islands of Britain is a delightful jaunt around the forgotten jewels of the United Kingdom.

The public’s image of the United Kingdom is generally dominated by the region’s four largest areas – England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales. However, few people know that the U.K. contains more than 6,000 different islands, each with their own unique and colorful local culture, cuisine, environment, and history. Learn more about these fascinating landmarks in the three-part series Islands of Britain. All three episodes will air Friday, May 2, 2014 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV. Hosted by acclaimed actor Martin Clunes (Doc Martin, Men Behaving Badly) the episodes explore the fascinating stories found on these beautiful but remote communities.
