The story of The Wildlife Trusts. Sir David Attenborough, Simon King and others take you on a remarkable journey through 100 years of vision, hard work and natural beauty.

From its inception as the Society for the Promotion of Nature Reserves in 1912 under the leadership of Charles Rothschild, to the birth of the local conservation movement after WWII, through its dramatic growth in the 1960s to the present day.

This 1 hour film visits locations such as Skomer, Loch of the Lowes, Brockholes, Flamborough Head, Woodwalton Fen and Ballynahone Bog. It also uses archive footage from Trusts, the BBC and other sources.
