Yes, I missed the one last night but it has been quite interesting looking at traditonal farming methods and it is clear how very connected they had to be with the land and their animals in order to survive. We will see how they cope with the bees!
I was viewing the latest episode on BBCi and it was a winter episode and could not work out what they had in mind for winter bees,then realised that the next episode with the bees is not until tomorrow the 5th.
I thought it was really interesting! The farm part of a larger working historical farm, Acton Scott in Shropshire (there is a website) and it is open to public. I wondered whether they will use the farm as an additonal tourist attraction. I have never been but it is not far from me and is apparently worth a visit!
As much as I like winter I found myself gazing longingly at that hay meadow and the May flowers, ginger beer and sunshine!!!!
Acton Scott is a working farm museum and is well worth a visit. It has been around for at least! 30 years and has amassed a great deal of expertise. Probably why the Beeb decided to base the series there. Ithink it has been wonderful to watch and I think our beek Brian 'done very well' and showed some very interesting kit especially that crazy extractor with the netting.
