More British foods join the likes of the Cornish Pasty and the Melton Mowbray pork pie today, in gaining protected status. More than sixty products in the UK make up the elite list and it's estimated that they help contribute more than £900 million to the European economy.

The fighting habits of pigs will be under scrutiny as scientists have won funding of more than half a million pounds to investigate how to prevent aggression amongst the animals.

And a West Country farmer has created a modern-day long barrow on his land, the first to be built in the country for more than 5,000 years.

Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Lucy Bickerton.
