Land & Sea: Summer on Merasheen
A full episode from 1980 on the resettled island of Merasheen
A "beautiful, wonderful life" — that's how Jim Barry describes his family's summers on Merasheen Island.
In the summer of 1980, despite the many reminders of the island's resettlement, three generations of the Barrys returned to fish, play and get away from it all.
Watch as the kids happily run wild over grassy paths, row dories and explore abandoned coves while the men and women fish for cod, salmon, turbot, dogfish and wolffish for the daily collection from the Natsea plant in Arnold's Cove.
