Queen's Garden Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Thu, Sep 27, 2018 -- 7:00 PM

Hidden behind security cameras and barbed wire are 39 acres of a secret wildlife haven like no other. It's the most biodiverse place in central London and it belongs to Her Majesty The Queen. But few have explored the remarkable plants and animals found here until now. There are a quarter of Britain's insect species, 300 wild flowers and 42 bird species in The Queen's Garden. Oxford Scientific Films was granted exclusive access to film in the royal gardens over a year across all four seasons from Fall 2013. For the first time ever, we'll capture every move of Her Majesty's "royal wildlife" using the latest camera technology. Miniature "Animal Cams" follow everything from pipistrelle bats to fledgling birds and bats. And we'll discover the intriguing, personal stories of the Royal Family's love of nature: the Queen's morning walks with her corgis. The film also includes bits of history, telling the stories of how the garden has changed over the centuries under the rule of different Kings and Queens. During Henry VIII's reign it was a deer park, it then became a menagerie -- and finally an "eco-garden" and family space equipped with tennis court and helipad!
