"Too late! Watson, we are too late!"
In 1720 Gilbert White, naturalist, was born in the Hampshire village of Selborne. His Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne, a classic work of observation, gives us a detailed account of the seasonal changes of our countryside and a vivid insight into rural 18th-century England.
Today Selborne - only 50 miles from Hyde Park Corner-rides the 20th century with disarming ease. White's Selborne survives.
Anthony Rye, who has lived there all his life, shares with us the secret of Selborne's success.
Written and directed by Peter Crawford
