Aaron Jones presents a look behind the scenes at Fieldsports Channel - a gentle chat - shooting the breeze with the likes of Andy Crow, Roy Lupton, Paul Childerley, David Wright and Charlie Jacoby.
Vegans at the Game Fair
We bring together two vegans and two hunters to debate the issues. They meet on stage at the 2021 Game Fair at Ragley Hall.
Wild meat goes mainstream
After years of telling them that wild meat is good for, it’s traceable and comes with low food miles, the mainstream is picking up on the importance of shooting your own supper. At the Scottish Game Fair 2021, Fife chef Chris Trotter brought together Mark Bush from local food marketing group Great Perthshire, who also runs Summer Harvest Oils, professional forager Amy Rankine from Hipsters & Hobos, and Pete Moore from Nature.Scot.
The Mightiest Mahseer
There’s something compelling about the mahseer, that great India sporting fish, that has attracted anglers from all over the world - and especially the UK. Now, Norfolk angler Stephen Harper has produced The Mightiest Mahseer. Angling Trust ambassador Martin Salter is also a mahseer angler. He interviews Stephen about the fish, records, angling books, snakes and scorpions.
Bill Harriman on the history of the bayonet
Bill Harriman – whom you may recognise as an arms expert from BBC TV's Antiques Roadshow – has written the definitive book on the bayonet. He discusses it with Charlie Jacoby at the Carter Jonas Game Fair Theatre at the Game Fair, Ragley Hall, July 2021.
Ian Coghill and why the UK’s Moorland Matters
Ian Coghill has written the book that the RSPB, the National Trust, Natural England and Wild Justice ought to read. But they won’t. He explains why moorland is so important to the UK, how gamekeepers have got it right when it comes to moorland management, and how the ‘conservation industry’ (the organisations just mentioned) have got it so, so wrong.
How are your foxes doing, Tony Blair?
In 2004, Tony Blair restricted hunting with hounds because, he said, it was good for the welfare of the fox. Since then, some estimates put UK fox numbers down 40%. Former head of the League Against Cruel Sports Jim Barrington and journalist Richard Negus want to know if Blair was right or wrong. Plus they want to know what the current prime minister, Boris Johnson, thinks he is doing by introducing and animal sentience bill. They talk to Charlie at the Carter Jonas Game Fair Theatre in July 2021.
Brilliant, well done. Yet another avenue from the team to gain an informed and entertaining looking into the world of field sports and the countryside.
Just tuned in and my first episode is with Mr Rowantree, everything he said was bang on, great interview with a good guy.
