The British Uplands Podcast: Episode 5/6

9/18/2023
A unique ecosystem, a rare habitat for wildlife, and a crucial carbon store, the UK’s uplands are all of these things… we’ve spent the last four episodes learning about how they are changing and what that might mean. But when it comes to steering that change, who exactly is at the wheel? This is not a sit-down studio interview podcast.

The British Uplands Podcast: Episode 4/6

9/11/2023
It’s October, and the red deer rut is well underway. The biggest, strongest males are vying for position to pass on their genes, and as the leaves turn to the browns of autumn, and the salmon push on upstream to spawn, it is as captivating as it is beautiful. We have spent the first few episodes focusing on people and our impacts on the uplands, but in this episode, we turn our attention more to the wildlife here. What role will they play in our future decisions as to how we use this landscape? This is not a sit-down studio interview podcast. Over the coming weeks, we’ll join Byron and Sarah as they travel the country and get out on the hills, meeting guests ranging from soil scientists, ecologists and rewilding enthusiasts to gamekeepers, chefs, crofters and deer managers.

The British Uplands Podcast: Episode 3/6

8/28/2023
Earlier in the year, I travelled into the hills, following lines of smoke drifting down the glens. It’s muirburn season, where gamekeepers like Will Curr burn old heather to encourage new growth. But this practice is controversial, and to try and get to the bottom of why, I wanted to see it for myself. To understand the picture more fully, Sarah Roberts and I sought out a broad spectrum of voices, expertise and opinions, from the Scottish Fire Service to government agencies and the latest science. Are we doing enough to protect our uplands from the risk of fire, and in the process, are we damaging the climate with how we manage the land? All this in episode three of the British Ulands Podcast. This is not a sit-down studio interview podcast. Over the coming weeks, we’ll join Byron and Sarah as they travel the country and get out on the hills, meeting guests ranging from soil scientists, ecologists and rewilding enthusiasts to gamekeepers, chefs, crofters and deer managers.

The British Uplands Podcast: Episode 2/6

8/21/2023
Our carbon-rich peatlands are now exposed to a changing climate and the impacts of human intervention. Many want to see more trees in the uplands, but why aren’t there already? In episode 2 of the British Uplands podcast, we explore the history of the uplands, both culturally and ecologically. Who lives and works here and how do they feel about the future of the uplands. Between ambitious tree planting targets, wind farm construction and efforts to restore damaged peatland, the British Uplands Podcast sees conservation journalists Byron Pace and Sarah Roberts explore the conflict between these difficult choices. This is not a sit-down studio interview podcast. Over the coming weeks, we’ll join Byron and Sarah as they travel the country and get out on the hills, meeting guests ranging from soil scientists, ecologists and rewilding enthusiasts to gamekeepers, chefs, crofters and deer managers.
