Helen Browning/Tim Finney
In a frosty field on the longest night of the year, eight piglets snuffle their first breath, and jostle close to their mother to feed. Over the six months that follow, Helen Browning and her partner Tim Finney follow their adventures to show how pigs become the mischievous, competitive, intelligent and inventive characters that we know them to be. In doing so, they demonstrate why it is so crucial that the welfare of our farm animals - and equally, the way we manage our countryside - takes centre stage in the contemporary discussions around food, climate change and the loss of wildlife. Drawing on a lifetime's worth of knowledge, PIG is an exploration of our relationship with farm animals, with nature, and with life itself.
