Synopsis
 
Catchment is a community play linking water catchments with school catchments, and examining inter-connectness within a bio-region.
    Close friends Kim and Vicki are separated when Vicki moves house, goes to a new school and becomes wrapped up in helping a pen-friend in Africa whose village is experiencing a drought – but Kim cannot forget. An old Dartmoor river myth, the siting of a new housing development and conversations on the school bus bring the influence of human and river catchments into sharp focus as the drama moves towards the threat of a fatal flood
A significant number of properties are at risk from flooding along catchments that include Dartmoor. It is thought possible that with the effects of climate change the number of properties affected could rise dramatically.

In many parts of Africa, the montane forest forms the last reserve for rare birds and mammals. Montane forest around the headwaters of rivers in the drier areas is important in mediating the release of rainfall and ground water into the water courses, particularly where patterns of rainfall appear to be growing less consistent. With land and firewood in short supply, the pressure on montane forest from local farmers is increasing.

The fates of fresh water and forest are likely to become increasingly linked if extreme weather events grow more frequent.
