In this program, Zay Harding embarks on a 5 day voyage from Cape Town on the last authentic British Royal Mail Ship, traveling 2000 miles across the South Atlantic to one of the world's remotest inhabited islands - the tiny British Overseas Territory of St Helena, marooned over 1300 miles from the nearest mainland. The island is blessed with spectacular scenery and a fascinating history, but as yet it has no airport, so it's very rarely visited. St Helena's most famous resident was Napoleon, who was exiled here following his defeat at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, until his death in 1821. Zay visits the beautifully preserved Longwood House, where Napoleon was detained under house arrest, and the tomb where he was buried. Unlike Napoleon, St Helena's second most famous resident is still alive, and Zay goes to see him - a remarkably ancient giant tortoise, who lives in the garden of the British Governor's official residence. At over 180 years old, he's possibly the world's oldest living land animal. The pristine ocean off the dramatic cliff-lined coastline is also brimming with wildlife, and Zay takes a spectacular boat trip amidst a school of hundreds of pan-tropical dolphins, who swim alongside his boat, showing off their athletic prowess by jumping high in the air.
