Meat and milk from the offspring of cloned animals should be allowed in our food chain without a licence according to new advice from the Food Standards Agency. But one cloning scientist, who was a member of the team who produced the first cloned animal - Dolly the Sheep - says we're probably eating it already. The FSA says that claim is highly unlikely. Also on the programme, a conservation charity is asking farmers to help save more the 250 species of insects from extinction by planting flower meadows. We also take a tour of the National Trust for Scotland's Torridon Estate in the north-west Highlands in the final part of the report into the damage caused by gorse fires last month. And we join the conservationist in Devon ripping up invasive species, Himalayan Balsam from the riverbank. Presenter: Anna Hill; Producer: Angela Frain.
