BBC Alba recently repeated the programme made in 2013 in which Babs MacGregor, a Friend of the Iona Community, makes a trip to the island to meet the people who have made it their home, and also from the Iona community.

Amongst those she meets are Rev. Peter MacDonald who leads the Iona Community today, and Davie Kirkpatrick who’s been ferrying tourists backwards and forwards to Staffa on his boat for over 20 years. What value does the island and Columba hold for people today and does Columba’s legacy live on in 2013?

This programme is available on the BBCiplayer until 26th February. Unfortunately it is only available to those in the UK
