Rooting for Wytham

Look out for a new BBC film, featuring a year in the life of a 400 year-old oak tree growing in Wytham Woods, which is being aired on BBC4 on Thursday 1 October at 9pm.

In this 90-minute film - Oak Tree: Nature's Greatest Survivor – entomologist George McGavin investigates the surprisingly sophisticated biology of the oak, learns how it has adapted to its surroundings over the years and explains its importance to British culture and history. A trailer of the programme is available here.
