Philippa Forrester and her son Fred are on the show today to chat about living and working here in our region.Halcyon River Diaries
Philippa has been on our screens for many years now from Children's Television and Tomorrow's World to the series Halcyon River Diaries which she made with her husband Charlie outside her back door.
As a family they are all mad about wildlife and try to spend as much of their time as they can outside watching it.
They feel really lucky to live in such a great spot, right next to a small river; so they get to watch the daily comings and goings of all their wild neighbours.

From science to The Supremes - Colston Hall’s eclectic new year programme is announced.Colston Hall
2010 saw 500 music performances and over 4,800 artists pass through the golden doors of Colston Hall, and its 2011 programme is looking to be just as busy with performances from The Saturdays, Katie Melua, James Blunt and Maroon 5.
On Thursday 12 May, the Uncaged Monkeys visit Bristol - the first ever national science tour celebrating the universe and the wonders that lie within it. Professor Brian Cox, Robin Ince, Dr Ben Goldacre and Simon Singh will talk of dark matter, black holes, bonobo apes, the big bang and anything else they can cram into their two hour show.
Colston Hall has also pulled off some major coups this year with Bristol appearances from two critically acclaimed artists from across the pond - Interpol and Mary Wilson of The Supremes fame. Interpol, whose seminal 2002 album came in at number 8 in NME’s top 50 albums of the decade will be stopping by on Saturday 19 March, and as a special treat for motown fans, Mary Wilson of The Supremes will perform many of the massive hits from The Supremes' vast back catalogue on Friday 11 March.
As well as a busy rock and pop season, the leftfield programme continues to span the musical genres in Hall 1 and 2. Hall 1 highlights include the legendary songwriter and bassist Jack Bruce, who is appearing on Friday 18 March with the newly formed Ronnie Scott's Blues Experience, and prepare to be charmed by Penguin Café, whose music 'brings sunshine to a Sunday morning.' (BBC Music) We'll have to settle for a Tuesday evening as they will bringing their familiar songs featured in many theme tunes and films to Bristol on 15 February.
African Soul Rebels are back, this time presenting Seun Kuti, the son of Fela Kuti. His Tuesday 19 April performance will leave audiences in awe as he shows us exactly why he is a force to be reckoned with in the Nigerian music scene, having managed to fill his father Fela's big boots as the new king of afrobeat.
Over in Hall 2, singer-songwriter Hazel O'Connor makes a welcome return on Saturday 26 February for a very special one-off performance of all the songs from the groundbreaking film Breaking Glass live with The Subterraneans, marking the 30th anniversary of the cult classic.
Mercury Music Prize nominated Kit Downes is already making waves on the jazz scene at the tender age of 24. His music uses melody inspired by a range of sources from Belá Bartók to Keith Jarrett to Rufus Wainwright.
He has to be seen to be believed, so it's lucky he's in town with his sextet on Saturday 23 April.
Colston Hall is still pulling in the biggest comedians on the circuit, this year starting with Stephen K Amos on Sunday 30 January. Milton Jones will be following up his sold out Tobacco Factory performance of his strange (in a good way) new show Lion Whisperer at the Hall on Wednesday 4 May. Finally, Scotland's Danny Bhoy's ten-date city tour stops off on Friday 17 June. If his performance on Live at the Apollo is anything to go by, he will leave audiences hooked.
