TV fame for Deerness river project – BBC Countryfile

March 25, 2014 Leave a comment

A NORTH-East river project will feature on the BBC’s Countryfile this weekend (Sunday, March 30).

A film crew spent a day at Lion Mouth Rural Centre, near Esh Winning, County Durham, learning about the Wear Rivers Trust’s River Deerness Restoration Project.

The three-year project includes new fish easements, monitoring and community involvement.

Project officer Steve Hudson said: “Having a TV crew interviewing us about the project is a great advert for all the hard work the trust and all of our partners have put in over the past three years.”

The piece will be included in the BBC One programme on Sunday, March 30, at 7pm.
