Rivers on the Edge – a film by Charles Rangeley-Wilson

Sorry, to view this video you need Flash and javascript enabled.


Rivers on the Edge is a short film commissioned by WWF and produced by Charles Rangeley-Wilson, well known presenter of TV series The Accidental Angler.

The film focuses on what Charles refers to as “the ultimate rivers” – English chalk streams.

These vital rivers – which are unique to southern Britain and northern France – are under threat from today's increased demands for water and the growing impacts of climate change.

The film, and the WWF campaign of the same name, reminds everyone that simple steps to reduce our water use in the home can help save these unique rivers – along with the abundance of native wildlife they support.

As Charles says, these rivers are ours to look after – they’re our rainforest, our glaciers.
