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 island and/or parish:

    I ... would rather be in dependance on Great Britain, properly limited, than on any nation upon earth, or than on no nation. But I am one of those too who rather than submit to the right of legislating for us assumed by the British parliament, and which late experience has shewn they will so cruelly exercise, would lend my hand to sink the whole island in the ocean.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    My stardust melody, the memory of love’s refrain.
    —Mitchell Parish (1901–1993)
