There's not enough money in agricultural research and development required to tackle the problem of feeding the world, according to Lord Taylor of Holbeach, but where will the extra money come from? Anna Hill talks to Lord Taylor about the importance of an injection of research funding.

With traditional rural crafts such as dry-stone walling and hedge-laying enjoying a resurgence in popularity, Anna meets a thatcher and his apprentice who are hoping to keep these skills alive and thriving.
