An Island Parish

An Island Parish is a British television documentary made by Tiger Aspect Productions for BBC2. Series one and two covered the lives of residents of the Church of England parish of the Isles of Scilly. These series were supported by the Diocese of Truro. They followed A Seaside Parish, which covered the work of the Reverend Christine Musser in the parish of Boscastle in Cornwall, and also A Country Parish before that. Series three and four looked particularly at the work of the Methodist Church on the Isles of Scilly, as seen through the eyes of the local minister, the Revd David Easton. Series five moved north and followed Fr John Paul in his first year as the Roman Catholic priest at Castlebay on island of Barra, the second southernmost inhabited island in the Outer Hebrides (after Vatersay, to which it is linked by a causeway). Series six was filmed on Barra by Tiger Aspect during 2011 and aired in early 2012, while series seven began in late 2012 and follows the Anglican priest and Methodist minister on Sark.

Famous quotes containing the words parish and/or island:

    When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls, and the stars begin to flicker in the sky,
    —Mitchell Parish (1901–1993)

    The island dreams under the dawn
    And great boughs drop tranquillity;
    The peahens dance on a smooth lawn,
    A parrot sways upon a tree,
    Raging at his own image in the enamelled sea.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
