Filmed to support the Commission for Rural Communities study on rural disadvantage, 'Hidden Voices' presents the stories of people facing disadvantage in rural areas across England.

Steve Knightley says,“We’re really pleased to be able to support this film which highlights many of the issues we flagged up in Country Life. So many fans immediately seemed to empathise with its sentiments – now I hope it helps get the message home to the people who can really do something about it.”
