Description

Part of Natural Selection, a series looking at NI's natural world and conservation issues. Featuring appearances from a cast of locals discussing the question of development vs destruction on Rathlin, "an island with a past that has made it what it is, a present that seems to have lost its way, and a future that's too important to leave to chance." 

Notes

Plenty of footage of Rathlin wildlife, including the birds for which it is best known: puffins, the clowns of the sea! It also features discussion of the renovation of the island's historic manor house...which remained incomplete until more than a decade later. Island time, eh?!

Credits

On-screen appearances from Liam McFaul,Christine McFaul, Tommy Cecil, Bernard Picton, David Irwin, Noel McCurdy, David Hannaway.
