The remarkable story of Brother Adam, the legendary Benedictine monk who devoted his long life to a quest to breed the perfect honeybee. Working from his monastic cell in Buckfast Abbey, Devon, Brother Adam created an incredible global enterprise. He collected genetic material from Europe, the Middle East and Africa over 70 years, from which he synthesised his world-beating Buckfast superbee - culminating in an expedition to hunt the elusive black bee of Kilimanjaro.
This film was shot over a season in the apiaries of Buckfast Abbey and follows Brother Adam to Sweden and Germany and his expedition to the slopes of Kilimanjaro.
This is an unrepeatable study of the workings of the beehive, breeding techniques and a tribute to the greatest bee master of all time and is essential viewing for anyone taking up beekeeping.
