Island Parish Could Return To Screens

St Mary’s Parish Church

The TV programme credited for increasing awareness of the islands and encouraging more people to visit, could soon return to the nation’s screens.

Yesterday, Emma Hughes who works for production company Tiger Aspect visited to discuss proposals for a new series of ‘An Island Parish.’

Emma was keen to talk with some of the former stars of the fly-on-the-wall series, to see whether they would be willing to take part again.

The BBC is very interested in a final update on islanders’ lives and are considering airing around six episodes.

The series wouldn’t be set entirely in Scilly, but would also feature the Outer Hebrides, where the 6th and 7th series was set and Boscastle, where the original episodes were filmed in 2007.

At its peak, around 2 million people watch the part of the series that was set in Scilly.

There’s no information about who would be here to oversee the production. The director of the original series, Nigel Farrell, lost his battle with cancer last year.

The final decision will be made by the BBC before Christmas.
