2011 is the last year of battery farming before an European Union ban is implemented. Dave Harvey investigates the likely impact on both West Country egg producers and consumers. Could the ban lead to a surge in cheap imports from outside the EU putting British farmers out of business?

Plus Kirsty Hemming reports on a funding crisis in support services for people with multiple sclerosis. Former rugby commentator Alastair Hignell is helping with a new campaign to raise money for a new therapy centre for the West of England.

And Alastair McKee discovers a garden shed that has taken on cult status as an unlikely recording studio for musicians. Rock star Steve Harley is the latest visitor.
