173 - The Baroness Of Floreana Island

In the 1930s German lovers Friedrich Ritter and Dore Stauch moved to the remote and uninhabited Floreana Island, hoping to leave society behind forever. All was going well but then another family arrived, hoping to share their island paradise and tensions flared. The final straw came when a mysterious woman claiming to be a baroness also turned up and claimed that she was going to build a hotel on the island. With the three parties all hating each other, it was only a matter of time before they clashed in a major way... 


NOTE: The Baroness of Floreana Island AKA The Galapagos Affair, is in some ways a sequel to Dave's previous report, episode 170 about The Essex. So check that out if you're keen.
