Ideas for Autumnwatch
Autumnwatch is not that far away! Do you have any specific ideas about who, what or where we should feature? Are there any concepts, themes or debates we should bring up and discuss? If so, please post your comments below.
(Are you on the right blog? If you want to tell us about what you think of this year's Springwatch, please post your comments here. If you have specific ideas for a future Springwatch, please post them here. If you have thoughts and ideas about our website, please post them here.)
In the Springwatch spirit of constant evolution, we are thinking of giving Autumnwatch a bit of a different feel to previous years, particularly as you, our audience, have been so amazing at sending us your own incredible stories, experiences, home movies, photos, opinions and questions, as well as joining in (in your tens of thousands!) with our snapshot surveys ..... polecat sightings, muntjac deer, cuckoos and more ....
We're toying with the idea of departing from our pattern of eight shows packed into two weeks and taking the shows more "on the road", potentially making one show a week over eight weeks... thereby allowing us to really 'Watch' the full autumn season, from late September right through to mid/late November.
This could allow us to cover more of the country, and more of the season, pointing out where autumn is most exciting or spectacular at any particular stage of this dramatic and beautiful part of our wildlife year. This would also allow us to make more of all of your experiences of autumn wildlife, as they happen.
So watch this space for developments. I can safely say that things are still wide open as to what we do (and where and how). So why not offer us suggestions of your own as to how we can make the Autumnwatch broadcast event that you've always wanted.
Over to you. Get posting below. We're all ears.
