Directing COUNTRY LIFE
ANE TREAYS, who directed the acclaimed three-part BBC documentary on COUNTRY LIFE, Land of Hope and Glory: British Country Life, will talk about her experience of trailing staff and uncovering stories, such as that of farmer Maurice Durban, who talked openly about losing his Guernsey herd to bovine TB. Miss Treays will be speaking at Filleigh Village Hall, north Devon, on October 7 for the Two Moors Festival. This was set up in 2001 to cheer an area devastated by foot-and-mouth and takes place in churches across Exmoor and Dartmoor, plus Exeter Cathedral, on October 22–29 and the box office is now open (www.thetwomoorsfestival.co.uk; 01392 665885). Highlights include pianist Peter Donohoe, soprano Lucy Crowe and trumpeter Alison Balsom, plus jazz musician Jacqui Dankworth in Shakespeare and all that Jazz.
