The team visit the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, where Matt Baker celebrates the 70th anniversary of Enid Blyton's Famous Five. He visits Corfe Castle, the inspiration for Kirrin Castle, before teeing off on the golf course once owned by Blyton but now managed by the National Trust as an SSSI site.

Ellie Harrison is on the hunt for reptiles. She is hoping to find all six British reptiles in a very small area of land. The smooth snake is particularly rare and elusive, so it is top of her list. Adam Henson is also in Dorset. He is out with the Wildlife Trust on a special kayak with a glass bottom looking at the eco-system under the surface, and finding out why they want it to be named as a Marine Protected Area.

Tom Heap investigates whether you would like to have nuclear waste buried beneath you. That's what councils in Britain are being asked to do at the moment. But is volunteering to bury waste really a good idea?

Katie Knapman looks at the geology of the Jurassic Dorset coast. She sees how the historic rock formations inspire artists and extreme climbers alike. And Adam is on his farm in the Cotswolds, where his Gloucester old spot pigs are getting a bit hot in the sun.
