BB's World a delightful film.

Post by Fredline » Sun Nov 05, 2017 4:50 pm

I found this on Youtube, wonderful little film.

A tribute to British naturalist and children’s author, BB. The last gnome in England follows a young BB through his life observing this giant’s fascination with nature and the Purple Emperor butterfly in the rapidly changing English landscape.

Well done John, that was a real treat, a fine tribute to a fine man!
