Our Chief Executive, Dr Gabriel Hemery, was interviewed for the BBC Newsnight’s film about Government’s proposals to sell some, or all, of the public forest estate in England.
Gabriel was interviewed with other leading figures of English forestry and woodland-related organisations, including ConFor’s Stuart Goodall, and Sue Holden of the Woodland Trust. A studio discussion followed the film.
The media interest preceeded the Government’s long-awaited public consultation that is expected to be published today. We released our own position statement on this issue last week.
The programme was broadcast on Wednesday 27th January. For the next seven days you can watch the TV programme on the BBC website (skip to 26 minutes through the programe to watch the forests film).
