Countryfile's Adam Henson sees how England rugby veteran Julian White tackles life on his farm in Market Harborough.

Besides rugby, Julian's other passion is 250-acre sheep and cattle (60 prime South Devon) farm. He even withdrew from the 2007 pre-World Cup camp on the grounds that he could not afford to spend several weeks away from his young family and farm. But Julian did make it to the 2009 Six Nations tournament and his wife Sara and friends rallied round to keep things going while he was playing for England.

Adam joins Julian and his family to discover how he tackles his double life of farming and rugby, and hears stories about his experiences of New Zealand pastures and a surprise Christmas cow.
