About this product

Filmed and narrated by EMMY and BAFTA award-winning wildlife cameraman Stephen de Vere, who takes a break from globetrotting to turn his lens on his own local patch.

This is what he discovered over the course of a year filming near an Oxfordshire village, including highlights such as hares boxing, fox cubs at play, sparrowhawks mating and baby barn owls inside their nest.

The film is a personal view, from behind the lens, giving an insight into what it's like being a wildlife cameraman - at the same time reminding us that you don't have to travel to all corners of the world to get close to nature.

A wonderful portrait of a hidden corner of the English countryside, full of unexpected delights.... Stephen de Vere has reminded us just how magical our own landscape and wildlife can be. STEPHEN MOSS
