Julia Bradbury and John Craven head to the Isle of Man. It might be tiny, but the Manx mainland packs in lots of landscapes: rolling green hills in the north, rocky coastline in the south and a scattering of unspoilt sandy beaches. It's the British Isles in miniature.
At this time of year, the waters around its coast welcome an elusive visitor - the basking shark. Julia takes to the water hoping to get a glimpse of this mysterious fish, but it requires patience, a keen eye and a bit of help from mother nature.
While Julia is all at sea, John goes inland on a trip down memory lane. In the 1960s, he used to visit the island on his motorbike. Fifty years on, he takes a ride on a vintage motorbike along the Isle of Man TT course before swapping it for a more leisurely journey as a passenger on a trike.
Across the Irish Sea in Scotland, Tom Heap finds out why birds of prey are getting such a bad press; and down on the farm, Adam trains his rare breed cattle for a starring role on the big screen.
