Coming later this month is Show Me The Honey! a new beekeeping challenge coming to the BBC
Show Me the Honey! follows wanna-be beekeepers as they learn everything there is to know about caring for a hive. [It also wins the CultBox New Title of the Day award]
With bee enthusiast Maddie Moate at the helm, the 7 x 30’ series follows four families from across the UK on their beekeeping, honey-making adventure.
Bees have been busily making delicious honey for what could be as many as 100 million years, and evidence suggests that humans have been keeping bees for 9,000 years. The CBBC series will capture all the ups and downs of beekeeping – from the joy of receiving their hive, bees and suits, through to the tribulations of maintaining a hive, up to its climactic final harvest.
The show is a mix of weekly and long-term challenges and those taking part are aided by bee expert Curtis Thompson. The I — the show’s very own social media platform — will allow the teams to collaborate, share their experiences and beekeeping travails, ask questions of their beekeeping mentors and create their own beekeeping community.
The first episode arrives on Thursday September 30 at 5:30 pm. You can read more about it here, and see the press release for more on the series. It follows on from the recent Radio 2 Zoe Ball fronted Big Bee Challenge.
