The Great British Garden Watch
The Great British Garden Watch

Part of the BBC’s revived Modern Times - a strand of documentaries defined by leading film makers and emerging talent, all tasked with reflecting the fascinating and diverse aspects of life in modern Britain.

Going behind the net curtains, we discover the amateur naturalists all over Britain who have transformed their own gardens into intense filming environments in the pursuit of capturing the daily and nightly goings on amongst the wildlife population. From foxes treated like family to the social lives of hedgehogs, these dogged naturalists will stop at nothing to capture that elusive shot of a fledgling bird flying the nest for the first time.   Combining a love of nature with a love of gadgets and huge advances in camera technology, the film explores the extraordinary lengths taken to capture the activities of birds, hedgehogs, badgers, foxes and pond life.
