Halycon River Diaries couple to put the Lost Gardens of Heligan on the map

An award-winning photographer and driving force behind BBC's Halcyon River Diaries is to make a show about the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Charlie Hamilton-James said: "I am a huge fan of Heligan for its leading approach to nature and the environment. It has inspired us for 20 years."

The show is for the BBC2 Natural World programme, said Hamilton-James, who stars in BBC's Halcyon River Diaries with his wife, Philippa Forrester.

Cameras follow a family's year living by a west country river. The couple are also using the Lost Gardens of Heligan in St Austell, Cornwall, as a venue for signing books accompanying the Halcyon River Diaries.
