Forces of Nature hits Oxfordshire

Professor Cox was in these parts talking about the seasons, as part of the BBC’s Forces of Nature series, aired July 8th.

As well as walking through summer, autumn and into winter in Oxford’s Wytham Woods, Brian also took time to enjoy the high summer sun on Wittenham Clumps.

Wittenham Clumps and Wytham Woods: the Ash connection

As well as both being places you might find Professor Brian Cox on a sunny afternoon, Wittenham Clumps and Wytham Woods have another connection: both are home to cutting edge Ash dieback research.

The Earth Trust, which manages the Clumps, is leading the Living Ash Project, as well as playing host to trees which are part of the British Ash Tree Genome Project, at the neighbouring Paradise Wood.
