Has anyone seen the series "Tales from the wild wood" yet?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01ng5lr

As usual it seems to be some more quality programming that we can't seem to get over here (I suppose we should be grateful for American idle ... or whatever it's called). I've been trying to find a download but so far have come up empty.

thanks

Jeff

A good premise that had some "reality" show baggage. It was broad and lacking in specifics but the heart was in the right place, especially compared to most tv drek. A guy on BBC4 basically saying "hey, you can make a living in the woods like Ben Law" can only be a good thing in the end, infect those brains with permaculture. Good to see small scale charcoal being made which I had read about in The Woodland Way.

Seeing as Paul posted links to Proenneke uploads on youtube, I'll see what I can do about making them available, at least in the short term.

You're welcome! Completely forgot to start uploading another two episodes before I went to bed last night, I'll try to remember tonight.

Well worth watching. Episode 2 is really good.... and also comes at the woodland management from a PC perspective.
Notice the chainsaw with the handle on-top for one-handed sawing, while up a tree.


An uploader for episode 3, 4, 5 and finally 6 would be awesome!

Yikes, sorry about that. Vimeo limits how much you can upload in a week and in that time it completely slipped my mind, I'll get the next two episodes uploading right now.

I made another Vimeo account so I wouldn't mindlessly forget to upload the final two episodes next week. Still encoding but should be done in about 45 minutes:
Episode 5
Episode 6

Enjoy!

Here are subtitle files for all the episodes. If you use the Flashgot plugin for Firefox you can easily download videos from Vimeo. Start playing the video, right-click on the page and select "Flashgot Media (1)." If the files have the same filename as the subtitles they should automatically load in VLC or most media players.
Filename: Tales-From-the-Wild-Wood-(2012)-PDTV-(XviD)-SUBS-.zip
File size: 4 megabytes

Oh my goodness - that lot takes me right back to my childhood. I used to ride all over the black mountains, and as a kid I used to play in woodland just like that. I'm getting all nostalgic...

I can relate Burra, very thankful to have been born in Maine which is about 90% woodland. There was a trail through the woods behind the house I grew up in which went around a great big pond. There were countless days spent simply exploring the woods.

When people ask me what I do for fun I can honestly say "I just go into the woods."
 
When I was younger I felt like a man trapped inside a woman's body. Then I was born. My twin is a tiny ad:
