Since 1900 more than twenty breeds of British farm animal have become extinct. On Your Farm meets a man who has devoted his life to turning that tide. Eric Freeman was one of the first members of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, which celebrates its fortieth anniversary this year. He shares his passion for Gloucester Old Spots Pigs and Gloucester Cattle with Sarah Swadling. He tells her that pulling them back from the brink of oblivion has been a 'thrill' and that, despite turning eighty, he 'can't see life' without his animals around him.

Presented and Produced by Sarah Swadling.
