Adverts stone, adverts!
It was interesting and not full of media bull. They were in croatia on a driven hunt and a bit about kent and sussex boar. I did not realise that defra had estimated the population of boar in this country at 500. They are a bunch of ostriches with their heads in the sand!
Nice to watch a documentary with no particular spin to it. They spent most of the time looking at the boar management and discussing whether DEFRAs idea of leaving countrol with the land owners is going to work. If it does work, I am sure defra will change it!!!

Hi Smithy,
I'm watching it, its really good isn't it. Travelling around Spain are they not? Those Spainish have got it right, hunting, producing and growing there own food.
