BBC2’s The Lakes with Simon Reeve

The Alpine Glacier Project’s Dr Neil Entwistle appeared on episode 2 of BBC2’s The Lakes with Simon Reeve, broadcast on the 21st November.

In this episode, Simon talked to Neil who is trying to understand flooding in Carlisle, which he believes is caused by a mixture of climate change and the upstream flooding of artificially straightened rivers. The programme also looks into Neil’s project to restore the original boundaries of such rivers, which can also help to return wetlands like Foulshaw Moss to their former glory. 

The programme is available to watch on BBC IPlayer here.
