Corfu: A Tale of Two Islands

Thursday, 29 November 2012, 10:35PM – 11:05PM

Corfu is buzzing – 500,000 Brits fly there each summer and around 10,000 of us have even chosen to live there. It is the Greek holiday island of choice for many British holidaymakers, and we easily out-number every other nationality holidaying on the island.

This week we’ll meet Lisa and Marc, who have spent their last 17 holidays in the same resort; Tanya, who’s travelled from Kent to Kavos, where she is now the queen of the tattoo trade, and Mary, whose dream life out here is being rocked by the realisation that her children have to move abroad to find work.
