ROB­SON GREEN’S COASTAL LIVES

ITV, Tues­day, 8pm

Cynon Valley - - TELEVISION -

ROB­SON Green ex­plores the ex­tra­or­di­nary lives and homes of the peo­ple who live on Bri­tain’s coast­line – from fam­i­lies who are swap­ping their city homes for a new life by the sea to those who have lived on the coast for gen­er­a­tions.

In the first of six episodes, Rob­son trav­els to the Isle of Skye in Scot­land to meet a fam­ily who are plan­ning to build their own tim­ber house in just one day.

Croft farm­ing is a huge part of life on Skye, and Rob­son meets a fam­ily of crofters who have lived here for four gen­er­a­tions and helps them move their flock of sheep to Staf­fin is­land on a small boat.

Rob­son also joins a fa­ther and son in search of tasty lo­cal scal­lops hid­den on the seabed.

And fi­nally he vis­its iso­lated Soay is­land, which only has three res­i­dents, to find out what it is like be­ing so cut off from the main­land.
