When Chris Packham put us forward to produce a programme specifically about wildlife in the UK for the new owners of the site at Ashurst in the New Forest in 1995, we were delighted to do it.

The programme was aimed at younger visitors and to promote New Forest Nature Quest as an innovative new visitor attraction.

Our cameraman Paul Cranston worked with a wildlife cameraman Andrew McClenaghan, to film many UK animals, some of which are only very rarely seen. Chris had great knowledge of the New Forest and took us to several secret places where we filmed badgers, hedgehogs, and even tracked down water vole. On the Nature Quest site itself we met a pine marten, stoats and wild boar.

It is very sad that New Forest Nature Quest was not a commercial success and closed not long after it opened, and was taken over by the Heap Family and is now the New Forest Wildlife Park www.newforestwildlifepark.co.uk but this superb programme survives as a reminder of a very innovative visitor attraction.

This is archive footage from our 30+ years in the video and audio production business and therefore quality of footage may reflect this.
