Series 1 | Series 2

Sharp, and charmingly mischievous, Charlie MacKenzie was keeper at Cape Pembroke Lighthouse isolated on the easternmost point of the Falkland archipelago. Revisiting the site, the white bearded, coverall clad Charlie vividly recalls passing time with HAM Radio, hiding contraband  and eventually “the day they came” when he found himself at the apex of an invasion. Today, both the beacon and its keeper are in their own rights, true landmarks of these islands.
