Get back to nature

BBC Inside Out in the East Midlands is looking for contributors for a film about a social experiment that took place in Ambergate more than 80 years ago.

Back in the 1930s an educational movement called Gryth Fyrd purchased part of Shining Cliff Woods, on the banks of the River Derwent, and advertised for unemployed men to form a near self-sufficient community.

Now, BBC prodcuers are re-creating the Ambergate camp with local people to see if it captures the imagination of hard-pressed families.

Rebecca Brice, who is producing the documentary, said: “If you’re over 18, currently unemployed and want to develop your social skills, and initiative then contact me on 0115 9021890.”
