Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison travel to the Wye Valley, with its gently picturesque countryside. Matt dons his walking boots for a scenic walk with a difference to uncover some of the Wye's hidden gems. It is a walk that requires a head for heights and nerves of steel.

Ellie takes to the water to find out how a restoration project is capitalising on the valley's industrial heritage to create rapids for canoeists. Back on dry land, she uses some cutting edge technology to get a badger's eye view of the landscape.

Adam Henson is also in Herefordshire. He meets a forester farming his herd of pigs in the woods. After the controversy of the past, John Craven asks whether it is time for people to consider buying veal again.
