Family! On The Beach

Weekdays at 9.05am

The fascinating documentary series concludes. This week the show focuses on the lives of the Sellers family from Portmahomack, a tiny fishing village on the east coast of Scotland. Four-yearold Benjamin lives with Mum and Dad, older sister Evangeline, twins Lorelei and Reuben and little Mippy.

In Monday’s show, Benjamin plays on the beach with his best friend Jocelyn. The little pals use anything they can find to build a sand castle. Afterwards, they visit Jocelyn’s grandad’s farm where Benjamin gets to play in a tractor.

In Tuesday’s instalment, the Sellers children play racing games in the garden. In the afternoon it is the village sports day, and Benjamin and all his friends take part in lots of different races.

Wednesday’s instalment sees Benjamin and his family visit the Falls of Shin, a network of dramatic waterfalls in the Highlands. After a picnic lunch, they go on a nature hike and spot all kinds of animals along the way.

On Thursday, Benjamin and his family play on the swings in the Portmahomack playground. Next, they head to the harbour to watch the local fishing vessels returning to shore with their catches of lobsters and crabs.

In the last episode of the series on Friday, the Sellers go to the Black Isle Show, where there are all kinds of activities to keep them occupied – like exploring sand dunes and riding in combine harvesters. Benjamin also learns how to milk a cow!
