UK: BBC series 'The Chronicles of Belfast' features urban mushroom farmer Terry

This is the fifth installment in the critically acclaimed ‘Chronicles’ series by Waddell Media, which has included ‘The Chronicles of Mourne,’ ‘The Chronicles of Erne,’ ‘Chronicles of the Glens’ and last year ‘The Chronicles of Strangford.’ The series highlights the importance placed on sustainability and wildlife conservation and the work that goes into protecting and promoting diverse natural corners for future generations.
 
Spring is a season when the city’s hills, woods, and rivers begin to emerge from Winter and come to life. The program begins with local conservation volunteer Aaron as he goes up Black Mountain. While carrying out an early morning wildlife survey, he hears a cuckoo, the first time he has heard one on the mountain - a sign that spring has arrived.

The program travels to St James’ Community Farm. The farm provides a real focus to the community, young and old, its animals oblivious to the traffic roaring past on the Westlink.
