Shooting Sheep (but only with a camera!)

As a broadcast journalist I’m always looking for interesting stories, particularly those on topics that are close to my heart, so you can imagine my excitement a few months ago when I met Steve, a Vegetarian Shepherd.

I meet lots of farmers when I’m reporting for Radio 4’s Farming Today programme but Steve is the first one I’ve met who doesn’t eat meat. I was so intrigued by Steve’s story that I asked if I could make a documentary about him and thankfully he said yes, so today we started filming.

Watching Steve with his animals was fascinating and I can’t wait to get into the edit suite to start watching the footage. For now you’ll have to make do with some photos, but I’ll keep you posted about the documentary.

No comments so far.
