John Craven looks at the year ahead and introduces some of the best Countryfile films from the last few years, all with the help of the Countryfile calendar.
John visits the Killerton Estate, where the staff are busy preparing the house, grounds and parkland for 2014 - and there is plenty to do! He starts with one of the estate's many farms, where lambing is already underway even though spring is a still a few months off.
Pausing to help rack some cider, made with apples from the estate orchard, John then discovers that Killerton House also holds a stunning collection of original clothing, some of it dating back to the 17th century. He then heads into the woods to help to clear up by turning waste wood into charcoal.
Finally, as the day draws to a close, John joins the estate workers for a barbecue - and perhaps a little sip of cider.
