a film inspired by 'Roots' Young People's Play

Lost Roots (2007) was a young people’s film  made jointly with Coombeshead College. It was based on the scenario of ‘Roots’ and funded by an award from First Light. Much of ‘Lost Roots’ was filmed on location in Yarner Wood, in partnership with Natural England.

The film looked at the issue of beech trees (which were under scrutiny because they were regarded as alien) and compared it to the situation of refugees.
