Judi Dench turns documentary maker

Dame Judi Dench is making a documentary about trees which will air on the BBC later this year.

The Oscar-winning actress plants trees in her garden to remember friends and family when they pass away.

The documentary, currently titled Judi Dench’s Secret Woodland, will be about the importance of tress both to her and the world.

“Judi has spent her life living beside one of the oldest forests in the UK, and in this programme she will embark on a remarkable journey with experts and historians to discover how deeply embedded trees are in our history, and how important they are to our future,” said the BBC.

“Filmed across an entire year, she will witness and experience their extraordinary behaviours through the changing seasons; from trees that talk, to those with the elixir of eternal youth pumping through their veins. This enchanting programme will use the latest in botanical research and innovations in technology to bring to life this hidden, unseen world.”

The programme will be shown on BBC One later this year.
