The Wonder of Bees with Martha Kearney

As a keen amateur with no training, Martha is determined to up her game and harvest her first ever crop of wildflower honey.

Martha seeks expert help to improve her beekeeping skills and investigates the science behind these extraordinary creatures and their dramatic decline in the British countryside.   She visits leading researchers and beekeepers around the county to learn their practices.  And she discovers how the intricately organised society of the honey bee has fascinated scientists, philosophers and artists since ancient times.
