Coast "Inner Hebrides to the Faroe Islands" 16 July 2022: Series 4 Episode 6 on BBC Four 11

Coast heads high into the wild Atlantic to the majestic Faroe Islands, where Neil Oliver discovers how romance blossomed for British soldiers and Faroese women during the Second World War’s ‘Operation Valentine’. Neil begins his island-hopping journey at Glensanda, the site of Europe’s biggest quarry, which provides the rock to make the roads of Britain roll. He also searches for sea eagles, recently reintroduced to the island of Canna. As he heads northwards, Neil meets adventurer Tom McLean. In 1985, Tom attempted to claim Rockall for Britain, by living for a month on the tiny outcrop of volcanic rock perched in the turbulent seas 230 miles west of the Outer Hebrides
