Next Episode of Jimmy's Big Bee Rescue is
A third of Britain's bee species have declined since 1980 – an alarming trend that threatens the collapse of entire ecosystems, and the viability of agriculture which relies on natural pollination.In Jimmy's Big Bee Rescue, Jimmy Doherty attempts to show the declines are not inevitable. Focusing on areas around the city of Peterborough, he will attempt – over the course of one year – to measurably increase the number of bees and related insects. He will demonstrate how farmers, businesses and local government can all help to solve the problem. And he will also show viewers of the series how they too can play their part.
In the first episode, Jimmy discovers the reasons for the reduced numbers, considers the results of a mass bee count across Peterborough and the surrounding countryside, and organises a plan to plant thousands of wildflowers.
Jimmy Doherty goes in search of the Secretary of State for Environment, in the hope of gaining government support for his plans. The programme examines how a radical transformation of the British countryside is needed to create a more bee-friendly environment, and reveals the results of the first episode's efforts to boost bee numbers in Peterborough.
