Summary

Poet Simon Armitage explores the island, which emerged from the sea following a volcanic eruption in 1963 - the year Armitage was born. Surtsey is normally off limits to all but the scientists studying it, who share their thoughts on this remote isle, and reveal how the sea is gradually wearing it away.
