The remarkable story of Brother Adam, the legendary Benedictine Monk, who devoted his long life to a quest to breed the perfect honeybee. Working from his monastic cell in Buckfast Abbey, Devon, Brother Adam created an incredible global enterprise. He collected genetic material from Europe, the Middle East and Africa from which over 70 years, he synthesised his world-beating Buckfast superbee - culminating in an expedition to hunt the elusive black bee of Kilimanjaro. Filmed in Buckfast apiaries, Germany, Sweden and Tanzania, The Monk and The Honeybee combines biography and adventure with science and natural history.
