The film tells the story of the project and its work on the return of the shad to the length of the River Severn. Made by award-winning film-maker Nina Constable, the documentary features the broadcaster, speaker, naturalist, marine biologist, former Royal Marine, and travel writer Monty Halls.
The premiere is a (free) ticketed online event hosted on Zoom. The screening will be followed by a live Q&A with Constable, Halls and members of the Unlocking the Severn team.
About the project
Unlocking the Severn for LIFE is restoring connectivity on the River Severn, the longest river in the United Kingdom. The project team is installing several different fish passage solutions to remove migration barriers limiting the Twaite shad’s spawning range. The goal is to restore 253 km of the river so that shad can reach their natural spawning grounds once again.
