Martin Clunes: Island Of The Pacific | Series 2 Preview (ITV1)

Martin Clunes resumes his epic ocean wide adventure in search of the real Pacific in a new run of his documentary series for ITV.

Martin’s voyage is inspired by reading a book given to him when he was a child by his father about the Kon-Tiki expedition across the Pacific - he was hooked by their adventure, the unexplored desert islands and the amazing sea life.

The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean on the planet - covering 63 million square miles, it is strewn with tens of thousands of islands with coral atolls, jungle clad mountains, and lava-spewing volcanoes. It is rich in animal life and has an astonishing kaleidoscope of humanity.

Martin says: “For centuries we’ve been sold the idea that paradise on earth is here in the Pacific Islands. But in our uncertain, changing world, how much of that paradise is left, and how long can it survive?”

Martin began his journey in 2019 for the first series of Islands of the Pacific, but his travels were halted by the pandemic - he resumed his travels in 2022 to discover more about the magical islands of the Pacific for this series.

Martin adds: “Three years ago, a worldwide pandemic brought my journey across the Pacific to an abrupt halt. But, thankfully, I was able to return to do more exploring.”

Martin Clunes: Island Of The Pacific returns Monday 15th April on ITV1.
