This is the message in a fascinating Scottish documentary which is shortly due to hit TV screens for the first time. Riverwoods: An Untold Story explores the interconnection between the health of Scotland’s watercourses and the wildlife that lives in them and the landscapes through which they flow.

Created by the team at rewilding charity Scotland: The Big Picture, the film shines a light on the perilous state of Scotland’s salmon and the degraded river catchments which have become accepted as ‘normal’. It shows how once bountiful rivers have been greatly diminished, but also how they could be reborn through restoration.
