  • How KING HENRY VIII Demolished Beaulieu Abbey (2022) with Julie Montagu

    🎬 Part of the AMERICAN VISCOUNTESS series of programmes that looks at Britain's stately homes.

    Not only is Beaulieu home to the National Motor Museum, but also to the extraordinary ruins of Beaulieu Abbey, which date back to the foundation of the monastery here in the thirteenth century. The more I visit historic houses around Britain, the more I realise how many of them have monastic roots.

    In this episode, Lord Montagu guides me around some of the surviving buildings and shows me the exquisite wall hangings, stitched by his mother, which chart the history of the abbey. I also explore a hidden part of the Beaulieu estate where the well used by the monks still survives today. And I end my visit at the newly restored ice house – a glimpse back to the days when historic houses functioned more like life in the tv series, Downton Abbey.

  • New Forest Adders (2005) Narrated by Bill Oddie

    🎬New Forest Adders, Filmed by Manuel Hinge for BBC. Narrated by Bill Oddie. Part of the 2005 'Wildlife Shorts' season.

    The New Forest is one of the few places in Britain where you can find all six of the UK's reptile species living together - but the leader of the pack has to be the infamous adder.

    This film offers a rare insight into the life of the adder, following them and the other reptiles through a typical season. The male adders emerge early in the year in this stunning setting. They soon shed their dull winter coat, reveal their bright spring colours, and then they are ready to find a mate through one of the most amazing and rarely seen wildlife spectacles...the adders' dance.
