Kate Humble: Living with Nomads

Kate and Nomad Family

Can a truly nomadic way of life still be viable in our modern world? Do the pressures of land use, population growth, climate change and technology mean that the future for the nomadic people of the world is in doubt? Kate travels to Mongolia to live with herders in the Southern Gobi desert - a wild, remote region where wolves and snow leopard are still a very real threat, where winter storms can wipe out entire herds and the promise of jobs in the many new mines opening up is undermining traditional ways of life.

The Wonder Of Dogs

Kate recently teamed up with Steve Leonard and historian Ruth Goodman to explore The Wonder of Dogs. Building on the success of BBC2’s The Secret Life of the Cat, Kate and co will be examining the behaviour and intelligence of different breeds of dogs.

Focusing on a single UK community, the three hour-long programmes will investigate how different dogs can be from one another and put them through their paces with a number of challenges, even assessing if some can be trained to read.

Kew on a Plate

Kew on a Plate with Kate Humble and Raymond Blanc

Kate joins forces with Michelin-starred chef Raymond Blanc and the experts at Kew Gardens to rediscover the rich heritage of our vegetables. A vegetable garden has been created at Kew to showcase the wide and wonderful varieties of vegetables which used to play an intrinsic role in our kitchens and on our plates, but now have largely been forgotten. Joe and Alice, the gardeners at Kew, share their knowledge of how to grow vegetables, with an emphasis on seasonality, variety and natural ways of controlling pests and diseases.
