The production crew and presenter Martin Hughes-Games, hope to showcase the Manx shearwaters from burrows on St Agnes and talk about the impact of the project. 

What a lovely team of people! We are delighted to host them on St Agnes. Thank you to all the community members assisting the logisitcs of the production, and to Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust for filming permissions.
