Firsts on Fair Isle

Undoubtedly, Fair Isle can claim a number of firsts. Some varieties of birds on their first visit to the UK have been sighted and recorded here. Now the first television drama to be set in this northern isle will be presented on BBC1 on 8 & 15 April at 21.00. It's the location for the next two episodes of Shetland, the crime thriller based on the the books of Ann Cleeves. Full details appear as an item in Shetland News, but do remember that reference is made here on the blog of Scottish Islands Explorer, a national magazine with international sales which was founded on the island on 2 January 2000. So maybe it was the first publication to be set up anywhere on the first working day of the new millennium?
