Within the shores of the Isle of Man lies an abundance of mystery and history, largely untouched by the way of life that exists in the rest of Britain today.
Melvyn Bragg, the well-known television and radio personality, explores the many facets of this outstandingly beautiful Island, starting back in prehistoric times, through Viking invasions, the Victorian industrial age, development of fishing and farming, internment camps of the last world war and right up to present day tourism and expansion of the Island's finance sector. The workings of Tynwald, the ancient Manx parliament, are examined and the roles of the Manx language and traditional culture in the modern Island community are considered.
This comprehensive film encapsulates every aspect of this unique and outstandingly beautiful Island.
