Countryfile is in Cambridgeshire. Ellie Harrison takes a sneak peek behind the scenes at Newmarket, the home of horse racing. She finds out what it takes to maintain the course and meets some of the jockeys of the future. In the north of the county, John Craven is on a literary journey in the village of Helpston. It was the home of one of our greatest countryside poets; John Clare wrote about the landscape around him. John Craven explores his countryside and discovers why Clare never received the critical acclaim of his contemporaries. But John Clare wasn't the only unsung hero to have called this place home; James Wong finds out about a little-known but crucially important Victorian naturalist - Rev Leonard Jenyns - who devoted his life's work to the flora and fauna of Cambridgeshire.
Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury are in the county of Hampshire. Matt explores the maritime history of the area by helping out on the largest and most powerful warship of her time, HMS Warrior. Julia is in Portsmouth where a story of an epic journey of naval heroism began with the unbelievable bravery of the Cockleshell heroes she also visits the only wasabi farm in the UK. Ellie Harrison is also in Hampshire where she goes out onto the intertidal mudflats with conservationists looking for native oysters and little terns. Tom Heap investigates how, when it came to innovation in farming, Britain used to be a world leader. But with a global food shortage on the horizon, have we still got what it takes to meet the challenges of the future? Adam Henson is on the hunt for a new White Park bull for his farm in the Cotswolds - but can he afford the high asking price?
