The report on the future of England's forests says they have untapped economic potential, including the creation of up to 7000 new jobs. Charlotte Smith asks the Environment Secretary, Caroline Spelman if she'll spend more on forestry to kick start change. She also talks to the Bishop of Liverpool, who chaired the review, about why he thinks public funding for woodlands and timber businesses is money well spent. Also in the programme, why baby eels are being moved around the countryside.
