Join us for an evening with Producer and Director Nick Stringer from Big Wave Productions Ltd and South Downs National Park’s representative Nick Heasman for a Q & A session.

An opportunity to watch the fascinating documentary, where Peter Owen explores the landscape, wildlife and people of Britain’s newest National Park.

Nick Stringer
This is the first UK-based film made by Emmy Award winner Nick, who has travelled the world making documentaries for the BBC, National Geographic and others. He has received numerous awards including Emmys for Lighting Direction and for Special FX. He became a co-director of Big Wave in 2000.

Learn more during the Q&A session about the skills – and patience – required to visually capture natural treasures through the seasons, such as a 2,000 year-old woodland that explodes with pollen and chalk grasslands that take a thousand years to mature. Nick explained: “I’ve lived in and around the South Downs for almost 20 years and there are few places that match their beauty. This is a homage to my backyard, the South Downs National Park.”
