I love documentaries and I often find myself feeling as though I’ve dedicated my life to the “wrong thing”after watching them. The idea for this series came to me after watching a documentary about bees, after which I decided that I absolutely needed to join the fight to save bees from colony collapse disorder, move into the country and get my own hive. None of this happened, but what if it actually did? That’s where this idea was born.
