Video: Bermuda In ‘Treasure Island’ TV Series

April 25, 2016

Bermuda has been featured in the Britain’s Treasure Islands documentary series on BBC Four in the United Kingdom, with the film covering aspects of the island’s history.

The description said, “This mini-documentary explores Bermuda – the oldest of all of the UK Overseas Territories. Located in the North Atlantic, it is home to the oldest continually inhabited English settlement in the New World.

“It was first sighted by Spanish explorers, but settled by the English in 1609. Bermuda is home to many forts and the World Heritage site of St George’s, the old capital – home to history and traditions.

“In this film, we see the ‘dunking of the nagging wench’ – a tradition dating back to the 18th century. Bermuda is the most urbanised of all of the UK Overseas Territories, however offshore islands are a haven for wildlife, including many unique plants and animals.

“On the remote offshore islands, a unique petrel was rediscovered after centuries of presumed extinction, and the species has been intensively conserved ever since. In this video, we follow this incredible conservation success story.”

  1. Absolutely Berm-u-t-full…And, extremely informative as well.

  2. Truth Teller says:

    Typical Anglo-centric and an insultingly racist take on Bermuda’s history that keeps the English narrative up front and centre to the exclusion of that of the African and Native American narratives.

    It focuses exclusively on the English settlers and makes all others invisible.
    This while seemingly focusing on Bermuda’s English heritage and fauna.

    Its 2016 but some things never change.
