Chris Packham visits some of the South's urban wildlife hotspots. From a Reading cemetery where the country's smallest deer with the biggest bark roam among the floral tributes, to the badgers of central Gosport, where the concrete environment has become the surprising habitat for a vast array of animals and birds. Chris is joined by Jon Cuthill as they visit Oxford, Reading, Chichester and Gosport.

Jon Cuthill visits a housing estate in Gosport where badgers are nightly visitors.
