We're delighted that Lutfi and Ruby Radwan of Willowbrook Farm will be appearing in the latest series of Ben Fogle's New Lives in the Wild on Channel 5. Over the past 20 years, Lutfi and Ruby have transformed a vacant plot of land into a thriving, multi-generational farm, with responsible stewardship and sustainability at its heart. As first generation farmers, it's been a steep learning curve, but one that should inspire us all. As the family attest, "It is only by taking responsibility together that we can hope to make a positive change." You can find out more about the Radwan family's journey at 9pm, Tuesday February 22nd and also catch up on My5.
Michael O'Mara to publish Alex Bescoby's The Last Overland
Michael O’Mara Books has acquired the remarkable story of filmmaker Alex Bescoby’s epic journey recreating the iconic First Overland expedition made in 1955, tying in with a major four-part documentary series airing on All 4 in the UK this autumn. Embarking on the "mother of all road trips" in 2019, Alex's book recounts his defining trip of a lifetime, investigating how the world has changed since the First Overland, and exploring themes of family ties, postcolonialism and the Land Rover religion. 'The Last Overland' will be published in hardback on September 29th 2022. Senior Commissioning Editor Jo Stansall acquired World English Rights from Jo Cantello at Wolfsong Media.
