'The Lost Village' describes a journey in search of the true English village, through dales and suburbs, moors and estates. It captures the voices of poachers and gamekeepers, farmers and hunters, nurses and postmen, teachers and craftsmen, to demonstrate that the past is never so simple as we imagine.
