This week there’s a refreshing, crisp breeze in the air as Autumnwatch returns with live wildlife spotting, special guests and much more. We also head out to the country with coverage of the 2013 sheep dog trials with Countryfile’s One Man and His Dog. There’s plenty of sport too, including boxing, F1 and the MotoGP.

One Man and His Dog

One Man and His Dog One Man and His Dog

For the first time, Countryfile is home to the BBC's One Man and His Dog competition showcasing the time-honoured skills and traditions of sheep dog trialling. The very best sheep dogs and their handlers from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales will compete to become champions of 2013. Matt Baker takes to the commentary box to take us through all the trialling action, while Julia Bradbury will be finding out if the collie really is the brains in the operation or if the simple sheep has been pulling the wool over our eyes. And Adam's in Bala in North Wales - the birthplace of sheep dog trialling - helping farmers bring down more than 900 Welsh Mountain sheep from the hills.

    Comment number 1.

    I was disappointed to find that you do not post red button programmes on iPlayer unless you've hidden them so well that I haven't found where! For example, I would have like to have watched this morning's MotoGP qualifying on catch-up as I couldn't get to a TV at 13:00 when it was repeated. I can understand that for some music performances on Red Button there may be issues with performance rights that would prevent posting them to iPlayer but surely not your own programming?

    Why don't you post the schedule for sport programmes on the red button in the same way as you do for non-sport? For example, I can see 6 different timeslots for one man and his dog but if I want to watch the Moto GP this morning, I have to go to the BBC Sport web site. I don't want to do that because I don't want to find out the result. Likewise on the red button itself, it ways you have the Moto GP but not at what time. It's also a bit 'dangerous' to turn on the red button itself because I could easily find myself watching the last few laps of the race on a recorded loop, so know I have to wait until 1.00pm for the BBC2 programme and meantime go into full "Likely Lads" mode!

    Hi, it would be great if Autumn Watch Extra & Unsprung could also be on BBC RB 303 HD
