This afternoon I am mainly laughing at the comments on Facebook.
As far as I can understand it, people are very unhappy that this week's ITV programme wasn't both longer and better, whilst also being unhappy that it might attract the unwanted, increased tourism to the island which that might have brought.
I think I know what those people really wanted.
A 10 minute programme making Skiathos look like a complete toilet, with a voice-over at the end saying "If you want to see more, tune in to our 4 hour extended version at 2:00am", said extended version been a Skiathos travalogue with Hollywood production values, which no one would bother to watch apart from us boomerangers.
I'd love to know how they managed to show kouk not heaving and crowded. i enjoyed seeing the monastry again remembering walking round,an amazing tranquil place. I do like julia bradbury happy to be shown with hair wet and tangled. i think they portrayed not just a commercialised holiday place, but plenty to see besides and quiet beaches. i think alot of people on facebook think skiathos is theirs alone and they know more than anyone else.They moan about everything they dont agree with. We know skiathos is perfect we dont need to be shown more. i thought she showed a different side to santorini , which was to me a massive overpriced, overcrowded, dissapointment.
I thought the same when I saw empty Koukounaries beach. I've tried looking at the shadows on the photos and as far as I can guess, they are pretty low down. I'm thinking the filming was done before anybody was up and about - film people are quite used to strange hours (I arrived to pick up rushes from a location in the middle of nowhere last week in the pitch dark at night and they were all still clearing up for the day) and it would be no problem getting just those three and the boat on the jetty at dawn. The photos also seem to be well positioned to exclude anybody else.
