Earlier this year we asked for your suggestions for filming locations. As a result, John Craven and Shauna Lowry head for the Sperrin Mountains in Northern Ireland. Shauna learns about the birthplace of the great poet Seamus Heaney and takes us on a tour of her old stomping grounds around Strangford Lough. She then joins John to pan for gold on the pretty Ballinderry River. John learns about the unique relationship between one of our most endangered species and fish found only in Northern Ireland. James Wong finds out what you’ve been doing to put more wild flowers back into our landscape. Adam Henson's joined by Dr James Logan as they explore the creepy crawly world of ticks. Tom Heap asks whether 21st Century garden cities really can provide a perfect blend of town and country.
