Chris Packham relives programmes from The Living World archives.

In this programme recorded in 2006, Lionel Kelleway is joined by lichenologists Brian and Sandy Coppins. They travel to possibly the oldest woodland in the British Isles, at Ballachuan south of Oban in search of rare and spectacular lichens literally festooning this hazel woodland; including the rare and gloriously named 'rubber gloved fungus'.
