Third in a 13-part series of investigative programmes from the BBC regions.

Television writer Carla Lane campaigns passionately against animal cruelty and, with her supporters, runs a sanctuary for injured and rescued birds and animals from her Elizabethan manor house in the middle of a 900-acre West Sussex estate. The house used to be the family seat of Lane's neighbour Rory Clarke, whose family have shot, hunted and fished there for 200 years.
Tonight's programme follows the conflicting ways of life of these equally determined rural neighbours.
