Mindfulness meets Mother Nature in new BBC series

Following his successful collaboration with the BBC on Forest 404, Centre PhD student Alex Smalley has once again collaborated with the BBC on a new four-part series, Mindful Escapes: Breathe, Release, Restore.

The series brings together video footage from the The BBC Studios Natural History Unit’s archives with voiceover from Andy Puddicombe, founder of the Headspace mindfulness app. The series will premiere on BBC Four from September 7, 2020, as four 30-minute episodes, and will also be adapted into shorter episodes for the Headspace app later this year.

The four episodes – Breathe, Change, Joy and Rest – will offer “the viewer immersive mindful experiences within the natural world“.

Alex has produced a web video about his research, which can be viewed here.
