Monty Halls’ Is­land Es­cape

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 7.30pm, SBS One In last week’s de­but, English marine bi­ol­o­gist and tele­vi­sion pre­sen­ter Monty Halls trav­elled to the far north of Scot­land to be­come a vol­un­tary wildlife ranger. Ac­com­pa­nied only by his trusty mutt Reuben, Halls was left gob­s­macked by the beauty of the en­vi­ron­ment and the warm wel­come of the is­land’s res­i­dents. Tonight the beauty con­tin­ues as our man and his dog take se­ri­ously their roles as pro­tec­tors of the marine en­vi­ron­ment and the stun­ning coast. Nat­u­rally the pigs and the tur­keys ac­quired in last week’s episode have al­ready grown sub­stan­tially. The pigs are sup­posed to be for ba­con — one of them is even named Streaky — but Halls is frank about his ab­so­lute fail­ure to not get at­tached. I sup­pose in some fu­ture episode we will wit­ness the con­flict of this man, who cares so con­sid­er­ably for the en­vi­ron­ment and all of its crea­tures, when he has to slaugh­ter his own pigs.
