Caroline Bedell on the value of shooting – FieldsportsChannel Podcast, episode 67
UK shooting and countryside groups are joining forces to commission new research into the economic, environmental and social value of shooting. BASC, Countryside Alliance, the National Gamekeepers Organisation, the Moorland Association and the Gun Trade Association are among those involved in the survey. They are calling on shooters to take part. The independent research specialists, Cognisense, will obtain facts and figures which will reflect the importance of shooting in the UK. The previous report in 2014 revealed at least 600,000 people in the UK shoot live quarry, clay pigeons or targets. The value of shooting was worth £2 billion to the UK economy. The new report will be published in 2023. BASC's Caroline Bedell explains the survey to Charlie Jacoby at the Carter Jonas Game Fair theatre 2022.

The Westminster Eight – 18 years on
In September 2004, eight campaigners broke in to the chamber of the House of Commons to protest against Tony Blair's ban on hunting with hounds. Blair was ignoring the largest ever peacetime march, more than 400,000 people, who marched on Westminster in 2002 protesting against the same law. Blair's ban, which came into force in 2005, has achieved the opposite of what blair hoped. It has damaged animal welfare and hunting is more popular than ever.
At the 2022 Game Fair, six members of the Westminster Eight come to the Carter Jonas Game Fair Theatre to relive that day. They tell Charlie Jacoby the story of what happened and the repercussions.
