Anthony V Paine is a man who has been an inspiration to me from a very early age. In this episode I speak to my grandfather about his childhood growing up in the countryside while experiencing the rationing that was part of the Second World War. From egg-collecting to den-building he recalls an English childhood in the 1930s and 40s. And we cover his fears for the future of the environment, his passion for walking on the hills and growing his own vegetables, as well as how he helped to inspire my own childhood love of wildlife. I hope you enjoy these tales from my grandfather.
