Some of my harvest mice are going to be on TV. They are being filmed by a wildlife photographer/videographer for a new Alan Titchmarsh programme called Seasons that will be on ITV1 in October time. A set is being built with small cameras in so they can film what they do in private too :oops: :lol: They did take a pair where the doe was pregnant too and were hoping to get footage of possibly the birth and the very young pinkies. Luckily the photographer has kept/bred harvest mice before so they will be in good hands. When I know more details I will let you know...

Nothing but professional. The guy was knowledgable, on time and genuinely nice. He had kept them before so I have no worries about their wellbeing after they have been filmed (and during since he's the one filming them). I think they wanted to film in a (fake) natural setting so perhaps that's why they abandoned you - to find some they could keep for as long as they needed, and both sexes. Still would have been nice to know though!

it was for a different programme - I think they just gave up on the mice because they said they'd been having endless problems trying to find them in the first place and then film them but yes it would be nice to know one way or the other.

How on earth do these people find out you keep them?

The only film opportunity i've had with my pets, was a small tarantula used for a program, they made the videos for some of Prodigy's music so i knew they'd worked with spiders and other creepies before....they found us through friends who own a petshop that well..doesn't sell spiders so found us instead :)

But as for nature programs etc, how could you take part :p
