ISLANDS WITHOUT CARS
The Channel Island of Sark

 

Exploring the Island of Sark 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 demonstrations in pottery-making, chocolate-mixing, carriage driving, cave exploring and rocking horse carving.
