This mini-documentary explores the wildlife and history of the Sovereign Base Areas – two British enclaves called Akrotiri and Dhekelia on the island of Cyprus that make up a UK Overseas Territory. The wildlife of this Territory is diverse, and includes chameleons, flamingos, pine trees and nesting sea turtles. But it is not just wildlife that is preserved in the Sovereign Base Areas: both enclaves are home to dozens of ancient sites, including amphitheaters, temples, mosaics, settlement ruins and graves.
