Island Life Series - Specials

Monday, July 6th, 2020 - 28 minutes

On Monday July 6th the ancient parliamentary history of the Isle of Man is being celebrated, as it is every year, on Tynwald Hill at St Johns.
But this year it will be quite different to other years, due to the restrictions imposed during the covid crisis.
With Manx borders closed, guests have been unable to travel across and niether have the military units that form the guard and the band. And there will not be general public access.
But it is still the most important gathering of the year for Manx people. With a considerable history, much of which we owe to the Vikings. John Moss bring us this Island Life Special.
