Badger(book of the BBC TV series) by Christopher Kenworthy
picture of the "Badger" TV series, following the work of a Police WLO. Set in Northumbria ,
this book provides insight into such issues as fighting poachers, egg
thieves, and the international trade in endangered species. Starring former Soldier, Soldier
Jerome Flynn as PC Tom McCabe, the drama is based on the work of Police WLOs and the extra voluntary work they do
protecting British wildlife.
Initial chapters follow the story of the TV show-
from conception to broadcast, the input of the cast and crew is reported -
although it is their attitudes and opinions on the series' subject matter,
together with a small biography each. A
show-by-show guide is also included. Later chapters use the series as a backdrop to British wildlife and the threat it faces.
The author discusses the threats faced from modern society and crime alike; he's also happy to point
out how destructive those animals can be!
Real-life WLOs are profiled, as is the work of animal sanctuaries and vets.
