A Guide to the Great British Bird-table
Presented by Chris Packham In this consumer's guide to bird 'restaurants', naturalist and photographer Chris Packham discovers an extraordinary range of bird-tables, from the back garden of Buckingham Palace to the top of a North Sea oil rig. He awards stars for the best menus and the best design - from floating bird-tables to gothic towers - and for the best service - an all-night restaurant! Stunningly
Photographed, it's the birds who are the gourmets, but it's not only the birds that make the final selection. Badgers, Pine martens, red squirrels and deer also come to feast.
And on the way to finding the best table in the kingdom, Chris reveals that without bird-tables many of our back-garden birds would not survive the winter.

A compilation of the slickest storyline and the sickest jokes I have heard in years. (THE LISTENER) A wealth of magnificent wit. adventure, 60s soul music and a cynical eye on 80s Britain.
Lively, sharp and fast, it also features a wondrous Tamla selection on the soundtrack. (TIME OUT) Producer GRAHAM BENSON Director SANDY JOHNSON
