My latest YouTube series “Jack’s Country” has now a number of programmes and there are many more in the pipeline.

I now have around 5,000 subscribers to my YouTube Channel and many of these enjoy watching Jack Hargreaves Channel 4 “Old Country” programmes produced by me. I am therefore making a number of programmes on the countryside of Dorset and Hampshire, “Jack’s Country”.
