Commissioned by Wigtown Festival Company for this year's event, this film in five chapters details the unique habitat of Wigtown's saltmarsh. 

Videographer Colin Tennant follows countryside ranger Elizabeth Tindal and award-winning nature Stephen Rutt as they explore the landscape of Wigtown Bay.

Stephen has been commissioned by the festival to write a book telling the story of the marsh, known locally as The Inks, which will be delivered in 2021. The five chapters of this film were released individually earlier in the week. This is the first chance to see them all together.

This event will also include some of the other films that Colin Tennant has made for the 2020 festival showcasing Galloway's natural resources.
