Surprisingly, the U.K. is made up of about 6,000 different islands, and some of the most unfamiliar ones are often the most fascinating. In ISLANDS OF BRITAIN (2nd release), actor Martin Clunes (Doc Martin, Men Behaving Badly, Reggie Perrin) sets out to explore these beautiful but remote communities, shedding new light on their history, culture, flora and fauna. Clunes guides us through amazing landscapes and seascapes, meeting colorful locals along the way.
