A simple tale of a year in the life of a Gamekeeper. From the troubles involved in rearing the pheasants and dealing with predators (poachers and foxes). The gamekeeper shows us all the good things about living so close to nature. The end of his year comes with the organised shoot. He has the sudden pressure of dealing with a lot of people, (beaters, the guns and “the master”) and ensuring that everyone has a good day and stays safe. Ken Loach’s adaptation from the novel is the first in our season of Barry Hines and Ken Loach collaborations.
