All Among the Barley & The West Country TrilogyDiscover
Join Kate for a fascinating talk about her latest book, Thinking on my Feet, as well as her life working with wildlife, the far-flung places that this has taken her to and the inspiring people she has met on her travels. There’s also a unique chance to go ‘behind the camera’ as Kate describes how the programmes are made along with some lovely anecdotes about the filming.
The second series of Kate’s popular BBC programme Back to the Land attracted great audiences and was the latest in a long line of programmes Kate has presented for the BBC including Springwatch and Autumnwatch, Wild Shepherdess, Yellowstone: Wildest Winter to Blazing Summer, Curious Creatures and Extreme Wives with Kate Humble.
In 2007 she and her husband Ludo moved to a smallholding in Wales and in 2011 set up ‘Humble by Nature’, a rural skills school on a working farm in the Wye Valley. They live with a variety of feathered and furry livestock and three dogs.
