A Year In The Beacons

"Autumn is my favourite time of the year, amazing colours - oranges, yellows, reds. Magical to be here, can’t ask for more. This is home, this is why it's so important to me. Wake up in the mornings and it's just stunning. " - Harry Legge-Bourke, owner of the Glanusk Estate

This new four-part documentary for ITV follows the people who live in the Brecon Beacons National Park through the changing seasons.

Featuring lord of the manor Harry, who is keen to bring business to his Glanusk Estate through clay pigeon shooting, the Brecon mountain rescue team, and the likes of fifth generation farmer Flash, the programme provides a vivid insight into what it's like to live in Wales's biggest national park.

Filmed before and during the global Covid pandemic, cameras are present as the mountain team rescue two snowboarders from South Wales' highest peak, Pen-y-fan, when Flash welcomes his first lambs to the flock, and as the park starts to return to a tranquil wilderness after lockdown.

Filmed across a year, this documentary focuses on their daily existences while they live among the stunning grassy moorland and remote reservoirs of the park through Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer.

Presented by Sian Phillips
