Come for a walk in the woods where Thomas Hardy spent his youth with ScreenPLAY artists Sharon Hayden and Alastair Nisbet. Reflect, relax and enjoy the green space. They will guide you through the ancient woodland of Thorncombe Woods with readings from the work of Thomas Hardy and Environmental Arts Therapy by Ian Heginworth.
In this episode Sharon and Alastair spot grass snakes in Rushy Pond. Mr Hardy - voiced by actor Rod Drew - reads the poem Weathers while a curious blackbird looks on. Hardy once said he would come back as a blackbird - perhaps it was him. Original music by Bonnie Schwarz and Pete Shaw. Next: Why Green is Good
