This week, Eye on Travel broadcasts from one of the most remote locations on the planet–St Helena Island. Deep in the middle of nowhere in the South Atlantic Ocean, this is a place that’s hard to get to, but you definitely want to be there. St Helena has a fascinating history–the second British colony and where Napolean was exiled in 1815 (also where he died). Joining the program is Adam Sizeland, Curator of the Museum of St Helena, who shares the interesting history of the island, which was discovered by accident and kept secret for decades. Jeremy Harris, Director of the St Helena National Trust, explains why St Helena isn’t a mass market destination, and why that’s a good idea. Then, resident journalist Emma Weaver talks about the biodiversity of the island and why it’s a perfect case study of disconnection. And Craig Yon, co-owner of the Blue Lantern and dive master, confirms Peter’s big fish story about their trip around the island and how many tuna they caught…There’s all this and more as Eye on Travel broadcasts from the Saint FM Radio Station on St Helena Island.
