Closing Time - Ditchling campaigns to save the village pub from a commercial assault that makes a nonsense of democracy – and of community.
Salad Days - A village production of the hit musical of Cold War England offers insights on backstage Ditchling. Is this an exercise in nostalgia, or updated escapism for a new dark age?
The Ditchling Ladies - Four ladies of Ditchling, two in their nineties, offer entertaining and improbably lively insights on life, loss and love.
Going for the Kill * Across Europe farming is in crisis. In England, hunting with hounds has been banned. This is the story of farmer Gary Lee’s final hunting season – as his world changes forever.
