A captivating glimpse of a vanishing way of life on Britain's traditional hill farms, The Last Shepherds follows Dave Baxter and Stewart and Gwen Wallace as they tend their flocks on the rugged Cheviot Hills in Northumberland.
Dave, who's keen on preserving the customs of the past, has worked on the same farm for 40 years. He carves his own walking sticks, makes his own sheepdog whistles from pieces of tin and enjoys nothing more than a night of music and memories at a shepherds get-together on a winter's night.
Inspirational and evocative, this fascinating look at shepherding traditions chronicles a way of life that is destined to become a distant memory.
