  • Finn's Country: Painting Watership Down (2016)

    🎬Roger Finn presents a short documentary about Aldo Galli who illustrated Watership Down.

    Aldo graduated from Agricultural Sciences at the University of Milan in 1992 and moved to England in 2001.

    "Creating the Watership Down collection was, without doubt, a unique experience and a great satisfaction. Quite possibly, it was the final development of an idea that I had unconsciously carried in the back of my mind since my childhood, when a Christmas I received as a present a novel that told the story of a band of rabbits…." Aldo Galli.

  • Finn's Country: Fawley Saltmarsh (2016)

    🎬Roger Finn explores a remote part of Hampshire to see the wildlife and discover its unusual neighbor.

    For Roger, this is an exclusive visit to what is probably the south's best protected wildlife habitat. Thousands of people see it from afar every day, but very few are allowed into the saltmarshes at Fawley Power Station.

    Alison Jones, Fawley’s Community Affairs Manager, said: “We have worked incredibly hard over the years to not only protect our environment but to actively help it flourish. The saltmarsh and the reservoir are wonderful examples of how this care and effort has paid off. To be asked to feature in Finn’s Country was a great opportunity for us to share this work with the wider public.”
