Kill It, Cook It, Eat It - Duck
Tuesday, 6th January 2009
10:30pm to 11:30pm
Part 2 of 5
This, part 2, has been made free because your dozy capper (ie me) wasn't paying attention yesterday when uploading part 1 of a 5 part series, and he forgot to click on the make it free checkbox.
Julia Bradbury hosts a series which follows the journey of wild game from the field to the fork, as nine contributors find out what is involved in the shooting, butchering and preparing of game for their dinner.
Set against the backdrop of the Highland estate of Balavil, the hunts take us into the little understood world of wild game hunting, part of a no-holds-barred exploration of the issues surrounding the killing and cooking of wild animals for our pleasure and for food.
Last night it was Bambi that took a bullet. Tonight the nine novice hunters go back to basics, bypass the supermarkets and go out to the Highlands to kill, cook and eat Donald. Vegetarians, fast food addicts and food connoisseurs challenge themselves to confront the ethical issues of taking another animal's life to feed the nation's ever increasing appetite for duck. They face an intensive gun training session before heading to the ponds to shoot mallard at dusk.
Can they deal with the prospect of shooting, plucking and butchering wild animals and do they have the stomach to eat the ducks they might eventually kill? And will they square their squeamishness over killing a wild duck that flew free all its life until it bumped into their guns when they compare that to the rather squalid life of a farmed duck. Currently UK comsumers munch their way through 16 million ducks, of which only 5% are wild like tonights mallards.
My capping equipment suffered a failure of unknown origin last night. Therefore I've used this scene release as a replacement. So thank you very much to the ftp team for being there.
