Watch: Documentary Follows a Year in the Life Of the South Downs

Peter Owen-Jones

A documentary following a year in the life of the South Downs National Park is now available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

South Downs: England’s Mountains Green is a sixty-minute show presented by local Vicar and author Peter Owen-Jones.

Peter Owen-Jones tells the camera: “When I saw the gently rolling hills, the light and the sea, it was love at first sight.

“I’ve travelled the world, but nothing compares to this. The only way I’ll leave is if I’m carried out in a box.”

The programme was first shown BBC 4 last night and was made by Chichester-based BigWave Productions.

Producer Nick Stringer told Chichester Observer: “I’ve lived in and around the South Downs for almost 20 years and there are few places that match their beauty.

“This is a homage to my backyard, the South Downs National Park and I can’t imagine a better person that Peter Owen-Jones to tell this story.”

South Downs: England’s Mountains Green will be available on iPlayer until March 23.
