On a warm and sunny March day in 1988 I took a morning flight from Penzance to St Mary's, the main island of the Isles of Scilly. The islands lie some 30 miles Northwest of Penzance and experience weather and plant life which are subtropical.

The reason for the visit was to test lines for the John Dunn Show which was to be broadcast on Radio 2 on 4th April. Live programmes of any description from the Islands in those days was a bit of an ask. Connecting with the mainland was via an undersea cable - not fibre - and/or making special provision to use BT's microwave link to St. Just.
