Countryfile Live Show 2019
This year, I was delighted to be invited to speak at CountryFile Live; a large show held at Blenheim Palace. I appeared on Countryfile a few years ago when they came to film some of the projects I have undertaken at Yew View. I was asked to join Ellie Harrison (Presenter) and Jo Brane (series producer) on the Big Barn Stage to talk about the work I do and what it was like to appear on Countryfile.
Arriving early to the stunning grounds of Blenheim, I made my way over to the Big Barn. It was a privilege to see my name on all the big boards around the venue and in the catalogue and certainly worth a picture!
Meeting some other Countryfile team, we discussed the plan for the session. I had already sent some clips of some of my wildlife filming projects over to the team and these were loaded up, ready to discuss. Having a quick chat to Ellie before our slot and we headed out to the stage. The arena was full and we had a great session, chatting about some of my projects and talking about the show and how it is planned and produced. I had taken all sorts of footage, including some of my more original projects such as my bird snack bar and mammal boxes. The audience were brilliant and I loved sharing my footage.
My ‘kids’ enjoyed it too and and it was great to have brought them along too.
We enjoyed the rest of the day at the show….. loads to see and do and we had a great day!
Thank you to the Countryfile Team for inviting me and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
