Adam Henson and Ellie Harrison discover the rugged beauty of Northumberland and the Farne Islands. The scenery may be stunning, but life in England's northernmost county can be tough, as Adam discovers when he meets local sheep farmer Emma Grey.

Meanwhile, on the Farne Islands, Ellie manages to get out of the wind by going snorkelling. She is rewarded with a close encounter with a baby seal.

Katie Knapman travels further north to Scotland, to watch sea eagles being released back into the wild. Plus Tom Heap asks whether having fewer farm vets is leaving the industry vulnerable to an outbreak of serious disease.
