Bristol botanist on BBC Springwatch Unsprung

STOP PRESS Just in from Tim Rich: 

"Libby Houston will be on BBC2 Springwatch Unsprung at 6:30 tonight.

"She'll be hanging off a rope in the Avon Gorge and talking about some of the rare plants, I think including Bristol Rockcress, and again on the main Springwatch programme later at 8.00 pm.


"Here she is (on right) with the Whitebeam named after her a few years ago."

Thanks to Tim for the tip-off so News & Views readers can enjoy the rare sight of a botanist on the telly!
