Hampshire & Gloucestershire

Episode 1181 Hampshire & Gloucestershire



Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury investigate the history of wildlife film-making in the ancient forests and clear-running chalk streams of Hampshire. Julia looks into Eric Ashby's pioneering work in recording the activities of badgers, foxes and deer, while Matt meets the daughter of Ron and Rosemary Eastman, a couple who first captured the private life of the kingfisher on camera in colour. Plus, John Craven visits Gloucestershire and uncovers the stories of two contrasting wildlife films shot there, and Adam Henson's father recalls the broadcasts he made about his life on the land.
