  • Ytene England's Ancient Forest (1995)

    🎬 Ytene England's Ancient Forest. An NHU Production for BBC2. Filmed over two years by Manuel Hinge and narrated by John Nettles.

    'Ytene' is an ancient name for the area now known as the New Forest. It was the site of the Jutish Kingdom and translates as "Jute", or "of the Jutes". An early Anglo Saxon tribe known to live in the southern parts of Wessex.

    Ytene explores the wildlife found in the New Forest in southern England. The woodland, bogs and heaths of the area are home to wild ponies, fallow deer, badgers, foxes, wildfowl, and insects. Seasonal changes are shown, and some elusive species, such as firecrests, hawfinches, woodlarks and tadpole shrimps are pictured.

    The programme is interwoven with historical re-enactments and describes the change in land use from mediaeval times.

  • A House In time (1997)

    🎬Building a Cob house in a day. Filmed on the Beaulieu Estate by Meridian Broadcasting.

    Imagine the year is 1650, a young couple, Jacob and Catherine are about to get married, but have nowhere to live together. Their respective houses are already over-crowded. Up to 10 or more people would live in a Cob house 25 feet long and 13 feet wide.

    Hence the practice of erecting a house in a single day by the whole village for the newly-weds. A communal venture. Once the house was completed, the householder would treat their guests to a party of eating, drinking and dancing.

    But how was it possible to build a house in a little over sixteen hours, and could it be re-attempted 350 years later? The following is an account of an incredible day and a brilliant group of volunteers who made it all possible.

    Our thanks to the staff at Meridian Broadcasting in Northam for their help in sourcing this film.

  • New Forest Adders (2005) Narrated by Bill Oddie

    🎬New Forest Adders, Filmed by Manuel Hinge for BBC. Narrated by Bill Oddie. Part of the 2005 'Wildlife Shorts' season.

    The New Forest is one of the few places in Britain where you can find all six of the UK's reptile species living together - but the leader of the pack has to be the infamous adder.

    This film offers a rare insight into the life of the adder, following them and the other reptiles through a typical season. The male adders emerge early in the year in this stunning setting. They soon shed their dull winter coat, reveal their bright spring colours, and then they are ready to find a mate through one of the most amazing and rarely seen wildlife spectacles...the adders' dance.

  • New Forest Badgers (2015) Narrated by Allan Corduner

    🎬New Forest Badgers, Filmed by Manuel Hinge for BBC. Part of the 'Wildlife Shorts' season.

    The badger is one of Britain's best-loved animals, and yet it is rarely seen. In the New Forest, the first evidence of the badgers are the setts which they occupy. But once an occupied sett has been spotted, many hours of patience are needed just to get the smallest glimpse of these elusive animals. This intimate portrait follows the badgers through their busiest time of year, giving an insight into their lives.

    This is one of nineteen episodes from the Wildlife Shorts season.

  • New Forest: A Year in the Wild Wood (2018) with Peter Owen-Jones

    🎬 Peter Owen-Jones looks at four seasons in the year of the New Forest. Originally screened on BBC Four in January 2019.

    ‘The New Forest is a timeless place - there are no fences and the animals roam free. I’ve always wondered how the forest and the commoning way of life have survived in the middle of southern England for so long. It’s been an incredible experience finding out.’ - Peter Owen-Jones.

    Over the year, with its dramatic seasonal changes, Owen-Jones ventures out into the forest and immerses himself in the lives of the Commoners, a group of around 700 people who have retained grazing rights for their animals, which date back to medieval times. From the first foals born in spring to the release of the stallions and the annual herding of the ponies, he discovers a hardy people who, despite the urban development around them, and the pressures on the landscape of 13 million visitors a year, retain a deep love of the land and a determination to see their way of life survive.
