From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Prince Among Islands was a television programme about Prince Charles' visit to Berneray.

In 1987, Charles, Prince of Wales visited Berneray in the Outer Hebrides, for a week to learn about crofting.[1] During his stay, he planted and lifted potatoes, cut peat, helped dip sheep and planted trees on the 92-acre arable croft. The Prince required that the island's inhabitants maintain his privacy from the press. On his departure, the people of Berneray asked that he return to visit in the future. He returned in 1999, when he joined the 140 residents to officially open the £7 million causeway to North Uist.[1]

The programme portrays his relationship with the island of Berneray. It was presented by Selina Scott and broadcast in 1991 on Grampian Television. Music for the programme was written and performed by Capercaillie and issued on the re-released The Blood Is Strong album.[2]
