BBC Countryfile & BBC4 TV Version


Posted on January 30th, by admin in Our blogs. Comments Off on BBC Countryfile & BBC4 TV Version

The Hutchinsons who feature in Addicted to Sheep and Director Magali Pettier had the pleasure to be filming together one more time at the farm. But this time it was by a team from the BBC for a ‘Winter Special’ for BBC Countryfile. The Hutchinsons who spoke to Matt Baker about their passion for sheep, the challenges they face as hill farmers in the winter and their motive for letting Magali Pettier film their lives will feature in the programme in a 6 min piece on Sunday 31st January from 7.00pm. Some clips of Addicted to Sheep will also be included in the programme. Help us spread the word!

And more good news, over the last few months we have been working with BBC4 to make a 60 min TV version based on our 85 min cinema version. We are now pleased to say that the 60 min version has been signed off and that it will be broadcast for the first time on BBC4 on the 8th of February at 9.00pm. Although it was hard to cut 25 min from our ‘labor of love’ we think that the 60 minute BBC TV cut retains the essential elements of the original allowing us all to experience life on a hill farm without having to get dirty!

For more pictures from the filming day please read our latest blog here.

The cinema version is still touring across the UK, so if you like the TV version and you want to see more, you can find out about our upcoming screenings here or our cinema version is now available on DVD too from our online shop!
