Introduced by June Knox-Mawer direct from Douglas, Isle of Man.
This year the Manx celebrate their 'millennium' - 1,000 years of their parliament, Tynwald.
Woman's Hour looks at some of the special events they've organised, including the sailing of two replica Viking vessels from Norway to the island.
We browse among their souvenirs, which range in shape from china cats to three-legged boomerangs, and in price from 50p to Â£1,000.
And we taste traditional Manx cuisine. There's more to it than kippers.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
