Filming the Britain's Treasure Islands TV documentary series

This mini-documentary tells Stewart McPherson’s story planning and filming the Britain’s Treasure Islands TV documentary series. Stewart self funded the project, and over four years, managed to visit every one of the UK Overseas Territories to document a surprising side of the UK. He recounts his adventures traveling to the British Indian Ocean Territory, getting mugged by a striated caracara (the smartest bird of prey on the Falkland Islands) and filming in the icy waters of the British Antarctic Territory.

This film is one of forty mini-documentaries made from the footage not used in the broadcast series.
