BBC Northern Ireland’s Home Ground is to broadcast live from Mount Stewart on the shores of Strangford Lough.

Beginning on Monday, May 6, it will run for three nights with presenters Jo Scott and Gavin Andrews as well as reporter Ruth Sanderson in the grounds of the National Trust property.

The Home Ground team will be meeting some of the people who keep the Mount Stewart estate going throughout the year, taking cameras behind the scenes to find out just what it takes to keep the estate running, as well as checking out the local wildlife, including red squirrels, badgers, horses and raptors.

The team will also be out and about along the shores of Strangford Lough and visiting some of the islands, meeting local producers and farmers who make their living from the land and the waters of the lough.

Strangford Lough is one of only three marine nature reserves in the whole of the UK.
