One year's work; 2,000 pheasants safely reared, and 1,000 pheasants shot. A documentary about the annual cycle of a keeper's life on a Wessex farm, joining his life while he rears the birds; turns them into free-flying wild birds, but persuades them not to stray; protects them from their natural enemies like foxes and poachers - and finally drives them towards the guns.
