Take a trip to Bermuda ... Very much island-bound, guest reporter
Robert Kilroy-Silk dons the long shorts for a look at one of Britain's last colonies. The tiny group of Atlantic islands that are a unique mixture of American brashness and cool British reserve.
Bill Buckley also goes British island hopping, this time donning a jumper. Shetland, a naturalist's paradise, where all four seasons can be experienced during a five-minute car journey.
And Anne Gregg finds the quieter and cheaper corners of the island of Corfu by living taverna-style.

'You're at war. You've always been at war and you always will be. They just give you enough comfort so you won't notice.' Hidden beneath the airbase the elite F-111 pilots live in a secret fantasy world as they wait, primed for the ultimate war game of World War Three. The arrival of the delicious Lieutenant Madeline Kohler detonates a chain reaction of deep rooted antagonism that explodes with cataclysmic consequences.
