As we trailed yesterday, David Waters, Director of the GBG, was attending the live filming of the BBC’s Wild Night In last night (Sunday) – a superb fund-raising initiative that we’ve previously benefited from in the shape of our new hide.
David was interviewed live by Chris Packham. The five-minute interview was interspersed with high-quality video film of our bustards taken at our release-site, and Chris, who has supported the GBG for some years now, was extremely enthusiastic about our release-project ending the interview with the words, “I haven’t met anyone in the UK that’s worked as hard as Dave and his wife to make a project work…they’ve given everything for this. It’s a brilliant re-introduction project…”
The entire two-hour programme – which is definitely worth watching from beginning to end – is now available on BBC iPlayer (the images above are screenshots from the programme and are copyright BBC).
