Sunday 3rd August

Matt Baker joins a forager and a freediver as he scours the coast of Cornwall on the hunt for a free food supper.  Anita Rani makes an explosive entrance in her first Countryfile as she blasts 26,000 tonnes of rock in the world's biggest china clay quarry. Helen Skelton tells the story of the gardeners from Heligan who went to France to fight in World War I, most of whom didn’t come back. Adam Henson is like a big kid with a new toy when he takes the keys of a massive new combine harvester. James Wong is on the trail of the native bluebell and Tom Heap investigates whether Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg's plans to bring back garden cities could have a detrimental impact on our countryside.

John Craven’s 25th anniversary

John Craven’s 25th anniversary

Countryfile takes a trip down memory lane with our legendary presenter John Craven as he celebrates 25 years on the show. To mark this quarter of a century, he'll be guest editor and decide exactly what goes into this special programme. John meets fellow presenter and good friend Adam Henson on his farm to reminisce. Tom Heap looks back at John’s first investigation about organic farming and reveals brand-new research on organic food. Ellie Harrison explores the highs and lows of endangered species in the UK, a cause close to John's heart. And Matt Baker does what John loves best; taking a drive in the beautiful British countryside in a classic sports car.
