The Queen’s Garden is being broadcast over the Christmas period on ITV1. During the summer I had the privilege of filming bats in Buckingham Palace gardens with OSF and Alan Titchmarsh. We saw a few pipistrelles catching insects over the water by the front lawn of the Palace and a rat wandering along the edge of the pond. The Palace advisor had suggested we shouldn’t show the rodent in the final cut as it may look bad on the gardens’ part, however I still spotted it near the end of the sequence!
