Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison discover the ancient woodlands and industrial heritage of Nottinghamshire. Matt goes in search of writer DH Lawrence, who vividly described the beauty of the countryside surrounding the mining village where he grew up. Ellie finds out how the county's old industrial landscapes are now being transformed into havens for wildlife.

Meanwhile, down in Gloucestershire and Somerset, Tom Heap looks ahead to the trial badger culls, and asks whether this is a practical solution to the problem of TB in cattle. Adam Henson heads to Valais in Switzerland, where he helps bring more than a thousand sheep down from high in the Alps.
