Series comming out on BBC4 on 17th October about the restoration of neglected woodlands. We're biased because we were involved in the programme in a small way, but having met some of the other people involved, it looks really promising.

With no TV and a dongle for our internet, we're not going to see it until tomorrow, so we'll have to see if it's as good as it sounds then.

Bodger, you might want to see how well we come out in the edit before you ask for the autograph.

We watched it this morning at Budgie's place.  We thought that they managed to balance informative and entertaining really well.  It's great to encourage people to think about woodland and how it is managed.

We've just seen that there's a clip of us on Iplayer, but our mobile internet connection is not good enough to watch is so we still don't know if we come across as complete fools

Watched the program last night.

Thought you guys were very knowledgeable and that looked like some cracking charcoal you made  

Was quite shocked to learn how much charcoal we import to the UK each year and that quite a lot of that is illegal


We will be buying UK charcoal from now on, I know it may cost a bit more but will be happier to keep people like yourselves in business than buying something imported.

We recorded it and watched it last night, I thought that you came across very well.
