Newsround March 2020
Well, March 2020 will always be remembered, in the UK, as the month Coronavirus took hold. We've seen exemplary behaviour and commitment from our blue light organisations, especially by the NHS, but equally we've seen unbelievable acts of selfishness and stupidity within some areas of our population. In amongst all of that, we have found a few wild game stories to discuss as only two grumpy old men can!
Charles Smith - Jones - Author and wildlife management expertWe are joined by Charles Smith-Jones, an all round countryside man who specialised in wildlife management after completing a full military career in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. Charles is the author of four countryside pursuit books which I recommend to all our listeners. They are packed with useful information and accompanied by a large library of photographs. Well worth having one, or more, on your coffee table!
Nigel Sampson - Founder of Holme Farmed VenisonA Yorkshireman who fell in love with deer whilst working on the Isle of Jura, Nigel is playing a key role in the countryside pursuit arena by bringing game meats to the general public. His passion for farming and game has enabled him to create a professional nationwide distribution network of game meats into retailers, the public, supermarkets and hospitality sectors alike. We need more people like Nigel to champion the sustainability of British game.
