Lady of the Stream
For 30 years Dora Oliver has been water bailiff on a three-mile stretch of the River Dove in the Derbyshire Dales. At the age of 74 she still scythes its banks, cuts down trees, keeps the local stone walls and weirs in repair and the local poachers at bay.
This spring Phil Drabble joined Miss Oliver to explore her special river world. ' If you've got eyes to see. I'll show you something quite common, but simply beautiful.'

Producer JAMES HOGAN Editor PETER IBBOTSON
