Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison head for the Mawddach Estuary in Wales, where the mountains of Snowdonia run down to the sea. Matt explores the enduring appeal of the area for tourists, while Ellie meets the farmers who are quite literally living on a gold mine, and cooks up lunch using bushcraft skills.

The team also reveals which image was voted as the overall winner in the Countryfile Photographic Competition 2011. And Adam is on the trail of another winner when he joins the judges of BBC Radio 4's Food and Farming Awards to find the Farmer of the Year. Plus John Craven discovers whether soaring lamb prices are throwing a lifeline to hard-pressed hill farmers.
