Within the shores of the Isle of Man lies an abundance of mystery and history, largely untouched by the way of life that exists in the rest of Britain today.

The workings of Tynwald, the ancient Manx parliament, are examined and the roles of the Manx language and traditional culture in the modern Island community are considered.

This comprehensive film encapsulates every aspect of this unique and outstandingly beautiful Island.
