Hares, Racket Papers, Hayfever and good book choices!


The BV Podcast is the ‘best bits’ from each BV magazine. A warm and chatty monthly catch up, read by Jenny Devitt and Terry Bennett – perfect for when you’re baking, driving or walking.

BV June ’22, Part 3 – just hit ‘play’ above!

In the third and final of June’s episodes:

  • In Farming, hares don’t seem to become an issue, reflects Dorset NFU county chairman George Hosford, but beavers (and, surprisingly, Jeremy Clarkson) pose far tougher questions – and there don’t seem to be any easy answers.
    And as the pig crisis is ignored, the poultry crisis deepens and the supermarkets refuse to budge, Andrew Livingston fears a difficult future for farming
  • Wayne Winstone shares this month’s choices in book corner
  • In Local History, Roger Guttridge starts his look into the Rackett Papers. The Rev. Thomas Rackett is famous for his interest in science, archaeology and antiquaries but did he neglect his churchgoers? 
  • And in Health, Karen Geary looks at the foods that will help if you’re suffering with hayfever


  1. This is fantastic my mum lived in Dorset in her early life and her sister lived in Shaftesbury till last year. I get the online BV but mums eyes are not as good as the use to be but this is great she can listen to the best parts well done for thinking of this.
