The bodiless coffin, Dorset’s winter woodland and an exclusive from Dorset Food & Drink


It’s a perfect half hour’s listening to start the new year – we catch up with the latest political thoughts before Roger shares the tale of the 18th century death that may not have have happened. We explore the winter woodland landscape with Dorset Wildlife Trust, and Jane Adams has some fascinating insight into our winter bees.
Lastly, in yet another podcast exclusive, Terry has a chat with the always-interesting Caz from Dorset Food & Drink:

  • Almost 250 years after the funeral of the young Milton Abbey heir, questions remain about whose “body” was actually buried. 
  • As winter sets in, Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Reserves Ecologist Steve Masters urges us all to go down to the woods today
  • Wildlife writer Jane Adams is on the lookout for a winter wild bee fix – even in December you can find them, she says
  • Dorset is known as a natural larder, from meat to dairy and veg to cakes. Caz Richards chats to Terry about the work of Dorset Food & Drink, how they’re supporting local producers and businesses – and shares her personal tips on some Dorset-produced highlights!
