A session of short films that celebrate wild places on our doorstep followed, after a short interval, by an evening with author, diving and natural history presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff. Taking us on a tour of the UK and Irish coastlines, including some of the best stories she has filmed for the BBC’s COAST and The One Show, plus Channel Four’s Wreck Detectives, Miranda provides a behind-the-scenes look at how the items are filmed and what happens when it all goes a bit wrong!
