Islands Without Cars

The Channel Island Of Sark

Season 1, Episode 3 of 6

Exploring the Island of Sark with Kira is a unique look at the last feudal state in the western world - a tiny, ruggedly beautiful island in the English Channel with only 600 contentedly car-phobic residents. Interviews include Seigneur Michael Beaumont, the feudal lord who inherited the island from his grandmother -- the infamous Dame of Sark. The program features an "improper" tea (thanks to the Americans) with a founding descendent, an interview with the island judge (who is not a lawyer), a look at the single-cell jail for drunkards, as well as demonstrations in pottery-making, chocolate-mixing, carriage driving and cave exploring. Interviews include a rocking horse carver, a water colorist and a hotel operator straight out of Fawlty Towers.
