Last spring I shot a BBC Countryfile in South Wales with Matt Baker & John Craven.
I filmed Matt on the beach finding out what’s being done to rejuvenate its spectacular sand dunes to prevent them from turning in to giant grass hills. Then we put Matt to the test when he joined a local college rugby team who use the dunes as an outdoor gym.
Further inland, John Craven unearthed a tale of deception. In 1944, seventy German Prisoners of War tunneled their way to freedom from a prison camp in Bridgend. It was the biggest escape attempt on British soil. John discovers how they managed to do it right under the noses of the guards and he helps to create a 3D model of the escape route. He also meets a woman whose family aided the capture of two of the escapees.
