Family Tree Episode 4 of 8

Tom finally has an interview for a job. He has also discovered he has cousins in both Derbyshire and California, and makes a plan to visit and learn more about the Derbyshire branch of the family tree. Tom, Bea, Keith and Luba drive up to the Derbyshire farm owned by their cousins from the north. Tom is interested to find out if the grass is really greener in the country and determined to get to the bottom of a dark family secret. Culture clashes notwithstanding, Tom gets his answers and some family truths are finally revealed. The family tree plot thickens as he also hears from his American cousin, Al, on the trip.

Meanwhile, Pete has to perform a delicate 'procedure' on an alpaca at the zoo but this life-affirming mission at the zoo proves to be something of a sticky venture.
