Separate from the Britain’s Treasure Islands TV documentary series, 42 “mini-documentaries” have been made using the footage (and often totally unrelated stories) that were not used in the main broadcast series.

All 42 films are intended as an educational resource and are provided free of charge for all to watch and enjoy (see below). It is hoped that these films will help raise awareness of the wildlife, cultures, history and heritage of all of the UK Overseas Territories.

Please feel free to re-post/facebook/tweet/use any of the mini-documentaries anywhere. You are very welcome to use these films on your website, blog etc. The more widely they are seen, the better. Use the links below, or email sales@redfernnaturalhistory.com if you require the original files.

The 42 mini-documentaries were created on a tiny budget using funds raised through KickStarter.com and donations from several organisations and individuals (see the credits at the end of the mini-documentaries, and also see acknowledgements HERE). A big thanks once more to all who helped make these short films possible.

It is sincerely hoped that these 42 short films will provide a useful education resource to raise awareness of the wildlife, cultures and history of all of the UK Overseas Territories.

We hope that you enjoy them!
