This video was published last week on the BBC: How a US island kept hold of its 17th Century dialect - BBC Reel<https://www.bbc.com/reel/video/p09m94fy/how-a-us-island-kept-hold-of-its-17th-century-dialect>

I'd be interested to hear American opinions on this video.

It seems to have been done as a second anniversary of this article: The US island that speaks Elizabethan English - BBC Travel<https://www.bbc.com/travel/article/20190623-the-us-island-that-speaks-elizabethan-english>
