Fair Isle on TV! and in the Media.

Fair Isle has been on TV and in the media quite a bit in the past 2 weeks.
Here are some links to what has been going on and what to watch!

The seasons opener will explorer Fair Isle & Foula. I only know of 2 of the many story segments, I was interviewed by Paul Murton while playing a round on the Fair Isle Lighthouse Keepers Golf Course.

 Also my son Henry Hyndman was a bird guide to Paul Murton at the Holms cliff edges.
Henry knows his birds... Here is a Link to a bit where he features

I'll post a link to the whole story after it airs.


I think he wanted to take a swing at me? 
We had so many takes... I had 3 perfect drives, but I also flubbed quite a few.
So it will be very interesting to see how they decide to edit our golfing? 



In the new "Fabric of Britain" documentary aired last Sunday,
four generations of Fair Islanders can be seen knitting together. Legend!
Fair Isle feature just after the introduction, about 4 minutes in.

Brilliant! a must see video!

The Good Shepherd features in "Shetland".

The new "Shetland" murder mystery TV drama was being shot on location here on Fair Isle.
Only a 2 day shoot on Fair Isle, Sept. 11-12
I was an extra, but I'm pretty sure you'll only see me on the cutting room floor.
Dates to be aired unknown? as is the murderer?
