Scottish dairy farmers are being urged to produce more milk. A report from the Scottish government wants Scotland to increase production by 50% by the year 2025.

We meet the farmer in Oxfordshire doing pregnancy scans on his ewes.

And rural broadband... would it be faster to deliver a message on foot? One MP thinks so.
