S6-E4 Western Isles & Shetland

Catch Up


The team explores the cluster of islands located in the north Atlantic, with Neil Oliver meeting a man who lived for a month on Rockall, a tiny outcrop of volcanic rock 230 miles west of the Outer Hebrides. Kate Rew searches for the bone-eating snot-flower worm, Alice Roberts explores the remnants of the chemical-making industry on the Isle of Skye, and Nick Crane uses an obscure branch of mathematics to determine the length of Britain's coastline.
