There is also a critical look at both the present day broadcasting standards and the shaping of our countryside today - all with gentle humour.A self-confessed eccentric searcher for wild orchids, a gardener with a garden given over to wildlife - insects, birds and mammals alike - Derek Jones is best known for his BBC Radio 4 programmes The Living World and Wildlife. In this book he is as entertaining and full of insight as ever and its compulsive reading from beginning to end.
