John Craven is in Thomas Hardy country, finding out how the landscape of the South West of England inspired this great British novelist. He uses some newly discovered paintings to see how the countryside has changed since Hardy's time. Meanwhile, Matt Baker heads out to sea for a sailor's view of the Isle of Wight's biggest boat race.

On Adam's farm it is harvest time, but will the dry spring mean he comes up short? Plus Tom Heap asks another crucial question: should farmers continue to be subsidised?
