St Helena on the BBC – a British island ‘since 1934’

St Helena has been “a British possession since 1934”, according to the website for the prestigious BBC radio programme, From Our Own Correspondent. Er, no… try 1659.

Not only that, but “the island’s remoteness means that it is heavily reliant on
ships going to and from the British Isles.”

People on the island might wonder why they’ve never seen these ships (supplies come in from South Africa, and the RMS St Helena left the UK for the final time in October 2011).

Horatio Clare’s dispatch for the programme reports on Christmas on the island, and the changes being brought about through the airport project. It should be pointed out that Horatio did not write the blub on the website… which may have been corrected by the time you click on the link.
