Spring at Jimmy's Farm
with Parky Productions
4 x 60'
Commissioned, filmed, edited and broadcast in seven weeks during the UK's lockdown, this series is a gorgeous escape and celebration of springtime.
Whilst many of us are having to catch glimpses of spring through windows and from back gardens, the season is bursting into life on Jimmy Doherty's Suffolk farm. It isn't just home to pigs and sheep - across nearly 200 acres there's a woodland and a wildlife park full of exotic animals. The farm would usually be teeming with families but right now it's just the animals and a handful of humans who look after them. Under tricky circumstances, there are sheep, goats and reindeer all due to give birth, as well as an escaping meerkat called Steve McQueen.
