The documentary, presented by environmentalist George Monbiot, investigates the impacts of pollution on British rivers. In 60 action-packed minutes, the world’s first live investigative documentary attempts to find out who is polluting our rivers and why we’re not stopping them.

“Our rivers should be beautiful, complex ecosystems,” says Monbiot. “But on our watch, they’ve become open sewers, poisoned by sewage and farm slurry. They’re dying before our eyes.”

Broadcast live from the banks of the River Wye, which runs between England and Wales, Rivercide features interviews with conservation scientists, wild swimmers, anglers, politicians, local residents and citizen scientists to document the ecological impacts of rising agricultural and urban pollution in the river catchment.


Tickets: £5 + 85p booking fee
