Furness Peninsula

The team visit a little-known corner of Cumbria. Julia Bradbury is flying high over the Furness Peninsula for a unique insight into how this landscape has been shaped by nature and man over the centuries. Meanwhile, Matt Baker takes to the water on board a century-old schooner called Hearts Of Oak. She is the last of her kind, and Matt finds out what it takes to sail her.

James Wong is also on the peninsula; he is in the sand dunes, discovering the plant life which thrives there, and also the science behind what makes the perfect sandcastle. Tom Heap is in Yorkshire investigating how the year's poor weather has had devastating consequences for the countryside.

And Adam Henson is on a trip away from his farm in the Cotswolds as he visits the Orkney Islands, hoping to see a very rare breed of cattle.
