This is a life story of bees and people. For millions years bees have been laboriously building the natural environment of our planet. But now they die in their millions. A programme of wild tree beekeeping reintroduction was launched in Polish forests. Can reaching for the past, and the original model of coexistence of bees and people, help us save the bees?
