The Islands and The Whales: The Grind

Clip: Season 30 Episode 16 | 2m 59s

This clip shows a grind, the traditional technique used by the Faroese to herd whales into the bay, where they beach and are slaughtered. Much of the footage is graphic. It may disturb some students, so prior to viewing you'll want to warn them of the nature of what they are about to see.
