A personal diary style exploration of the nature of a riverbank through the seasons, guided by wildlife cameraman Stephen de Vere.
From otter families to tiny water shrews, the camera reveals secret worlds every bit as poignant and fascinating as those on the African plains.
There is no presenter and no music to distract, it's just Stephen, his camera and the wildlife. The film is narrated entirely by him, bringing all his skills and experience of being there.
