RADIO PLAY: BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour

To introduce the fascinating Woman’s Hour interview with Isabella Tree (10 June 2024) I was asked to provide a soundscape snippet of a spring dawn on the Knepp Estate. Listen to the interview here (25m 12s in) It heralded the release of the brilliant film ‘Wilding’ about their journey from a failing farm to international example of rewilding – a must-see.

Wilding tells the story of a young couple that bets on nature for the future of their failing, four-hundred-year-old estate. The young couple battles entrenched tradition, and dares to place the fate of their farm in the hands of nature. Ripping down the fences, they set the land back to the wild and entrust its recovery to a motley mix of animals both tame and wild. It is the beginning of a grand experiment that will become one of the most significant rewilding experiments in Europe.
