The National Farmers Union is due to be in the High Court today, seeking an injunction against anti badger cull activists 'to protect farmers and landowners'. The NFU says there have been 'various incidents of harassment and intimidation'. Sybil Ruscoe asks the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire how such an injunction would affect policing.

Meanwhile, we meet a group of peaceful protesters intent on picking up wounded badger badgers, once the pilot culls begin.

And, as the August bank holiday approaches, we continue our exploration of how farmers are earning their share of the tourist pound.

Produced by Sarah Swadling, and Presented by Sybil Ruscoe.
