Tales from the Wild Wood

There is a great series on BBC television at the moment about woodlands.
Write and woodsman Rob Penn has a year-long project in Wales to bring part of an abandoned woodland back to life.
The programme is being shown on the BBC4 TV channel. I know some of you may not be able to receive this, so I will try to find a way to make it available in the future.
It is a great programme for many reasons: the English is very good and understandable, so it is suitable for students learning English; also, the programme looks at many aspects of woodland management and the problems facing modern woodlands in Britain.
I hope you have the opportunity to watch it.
