Ray visits The Cevennes National Park, one of the most uninhabited regions in France. He travels deep into the Chestnut forest to meet Laurent, a local farmer whose family have grown chestnut trees for generations. He sets up a campfire to cook some chestnuts to make a chestnut soup.

He continues his journey, meeting a local bee-keeper who builds traditional hives from tree trunks before heading off to find an animal who would once have been common to this area, the wolf. Living in the park amongst the wolves are vultures and Ray hears the story of their successful re-introduction to the area.

    Just watching Wild France (episode 4) andthe part with the Wolves has a lovely backing track. Just wondering if anyone could tell me what it’s called? Is it a Julian Bayliss track as I noticed while searching that he did some (maybe all) of the music?
