Unfortunately, the first few minutes of the talk are missing from the recording, However, as he explained in his introduction, Tim is a local journalist and broadcaster, who has been visiting the Faroe Islands — a group of islands half-way between Iceland and the Shetlands — for more than a decade and has made many friends among the islanders, some of whom are pictured in his presentation.

Tim has helped them with their sheep-herding and sampled many island culinary delicacies.

His book is called "The Land of Maybe: a Faroe Islands Year".
