l think it was great and great for children too, it was my daughter checking incase any predetors got them.

l had'nt realised one had TB, thought he said all were clear:((
But what an amazing set up, be great if children could actually go and watch at the set up.

Daughter has recorded the last 2 for g/daughter as they have been away.

Chris, apparently she makes a noise to encourage the buck, I think they got it wrong and she was 'saying' Sod off! lol Seems a bit soon.

I was fascinated by the programme and I think it would be great to show in schools - even young children could learn a lot from it and the biology (reproduction) part explained to them later. It was a wonderful idea to create the views into the burrows etc.

Sad that one of the badgers got tb so had to be put to sleep, I hope it wasn't Bramble.

Don't know about young children but two oldies here have been fascinated by it!

Felt so sorry for the doe - she has just about finished birthing when the buck pounces on her - poor girl.

I missed it this week as o.h. wanted to watch something else and I was recording a different programme.
I loved the first one, so hopefully they will repeat this week's episode or I will have to watch it online.
