Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury explore the countryside where the North Downs rise up to create the Surrey Hills. Julia heads to one of the county's vineyards to learn about English wines, and she discovers why they are taking on the French when it comes to quality.

Matt is at Box Hill, which has been chosen as a venue for the 2012 Olympics. He takes to the saddle with Chris Boardman to find out why its winding roads make a perfect race track.

While Matt is on his bike, Katie Knapman is behind the scenes at the Olympic park where all the stops are being pulled out to keep the wildlife happy.

Elsewhere, John Craven investigates solar power and, down on the farm, Adam Henson is busy keeping a watchful eye on all his young lambs out in the fields.
