Tale of Whisky Galore celebrates 70 years

This weekend marks the 70th anniversary of the grounding of a ship carrying thousands of bottles of whisky in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland.

The events which followed on the island of Eriskay inspired a book and a film - Whisky Galore.

James Cook has been to visit the island to find out more.
