In this 3 minute ITV Calendar film, shot at Tankersley Old Hall, Richard describes how on a moonlit night in June 1965, he went to take his kestrel, Kes, from a nest in these medieval ruins.

In 1965, Richard worked as falconer on the Ken Loach film, Kes, training the three kestrels used in the film, and teaching David Bradley, who played Billy Casper, falconry. In the film, David climbs up to the nest at Tankersley Old Hall to take his kestrel.
