Between The Ears: Secrets of the Scottish Rainforest

Scottish Makar Kathleen Jamie explores a temperate rainforest on the Atlantic coastline near the Sound of Mull.

Out of this experience, Kathleen has written The Green Room, a sequence of lyrical poems which tell the story of these ancient woodlands from the perspective of the water, lichens, mosses, oaks and hazelwoods that make up this unique and incredibly rare ecosystem.

Joining her in this wet and wild corner of the Scottish Highlands is crofter and temperate rainforest expert Alaisdair Firth from The Woodland Trust and local RSPB warden Izzy Baker.
