In the Orkney Islands wind turbines are to be found on many farms - and have been a useful boost to farm incomes. However, as Alasdair Cross reports from the Islands, there is a problem; these turbines are now producing an energy surplus. And English winemakers are picking grapes in the rain. What are the prospects for the 2012 vintage?

Presented by Charlotte Smith and produced in Birmingham by Rich Ward.
