Earlier this month, a German TV team came out to Great Bernera to film our life on the island.
They were curious to find out why we chose to move from a large town in Bavaria to a small island in the Outer Hebrides. They were also interested in what steps we’re taking to become self-sufficient in our food and energy production.
Alina and Thomas, the reporter and the cameraman, spent a fun day and a half with us and left with almost five hours of video footage. This they edited down to a 12-minute report which was aired on German TV channel RTL on Saturday, 21 October.
This is the report – there are a few minor inaccuracies but, on the whole, they’ve done a stellar job. Thank you, Alina and Thomas!
(For the benefit of our non-German speaking friends, Helen has added English subtitles.)
We hope you enjoy it 🙂
