Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury head for the Vale of the White Horse in Oxfordshire to help restore the iconic chalk carvings which gave the area its name. They also find out how sheep wool is being used to insulate an entire village and visit a cookery school which specializes in game and wild food.

John Craven travels to the other side of the Channel to see how the French keep the heart of their country villages alive - and asks if there is anything we can learn from them.

And down on the farm, Adam Henson is introducing a new system of electronic ear-tagging for his sheep to make sure they can all be traced back to his farm.
