BBC Package: Save Our Woods - One Village's Fight Against Highways England

  • Al Booth

In rural Nottinghamshire a group of villagers are taking on Highways England to protect the woodland their children and grandchildren played in, after a For Sale sign went up on the land. The challenge in making this package was to create something entertaining and with colour, that would be more than dry voices talking about council support and putting orders in place. As strong as their cause is, it needs to relate to a wider audience. And for that... you need references to The Gruffalo. Conceived, written, reported, and produced by me for BBC Radio Nottingham.
