Caught by the River

Grayling Festival – Oliver Kite & Friends

21st November 2011

Ollie Kite, Dr Jones and Dr Rameaux fish for grayling on the Avon. Dr Rammel brings along his famous automatic fly reel, will it give him the advantage?

Extremely rare footage taken from the long deleted video of Ollie’s only existing TV shows at Southern Television in the 1960’s. Completely captivating and charming short films of a master countryman, broadcaster, naturalist, writer and fisherman – a great influence on those fortunate to have met and worked with him. He (along with producer Ted Channell) were among the pioneers of today’s popular nature television programmes.
