Everyone loves a hedgehog – especially rocker and wildlife nut Brian May, who founded Surrey’s Amazing Grace Rescue Centre to care for the spiny little critters.

In this charming documentary, Steve Backshall visits Amazing Grace to find out more about its work, meeting Brian, co-founder Anne Brummer and some of the Centre’s tiny charges.

Steve also travels the country meeting other people dedicated to helping the hogs, finds out how to make our gardens more appealing to the animals, goes on a night-time hedgehog-spotting walk in London’s Regent’s Park and meets Derek, a bald hog whose spines fell out because of stress!
