Organic cereal farmers in the UK are facing a shortage of organically certified, good quality seeds. This year, fusarium, a fungal disease which can greatly reduce yields and even wipe out an entire crop has taken hold in the damp conditions.

As one charity estimates that only around 1% of the paths and bridleways are fully accessible to people with disabilities, Anna Hill asks if the countryside is closed to those with additional access needs.

Presented by Anna Hill and produced in Birmingham by Rich Ward.
