Countryfile Calendar 2017

Countryfile Calendar 2017

The winner of this year’s Countryfile photographic competition is Berry Brunch, taken by Dean Mason. The winning photo takes pride of place on the front cover of the Countryfile 2017 calendar, in aid of BBC Children in Need. The theme for this year’s competition was ‘From Dawn Till Dusk’.  We had more than 21,000 entries, from which our judges John Craven, Deborah Meaden and Simon King chose the final 12 calendar images. They show our beautiful British countryside in all its guises, from the break of day to night fall.

Sheepwatch UK

Sheepwatch UK

It’s estimated that every year thousands of farm animals are killed or injured by pet dogs. It’s a particular problem at this time of year when pregnant ewes and newborn lambs are in the fields. Recently on Countryfile Tom met Terena Plowright, a shepherdess and dog trainer who has set up Sheepwatch UK to help reduce the number of attacks. She wants farmers to report all cases of dogs worrying sheep so that they can build up a picture of the true scale of the problem.
