This Link provides access to “Windfarm Wars ….” a dramatic four-part BBC series examining what happens when a windfarm of nine 120-metre high turbines is planned to be built on sensitive English landscape. It’s the story of a deeply divided community with a conclusion that will impact on the future of land-based renewable energy in the UK.
Filmed over four turbulent years, each episode explores in candid and intimate detail a story that goes to the very heart of the question of renewable energy, our attitudes towards it and the future for on-shore wind energy not only in the UK but around the world.
