The Great British Hop

Three decades ago Miles Warde worked on a hop farm in Herefordshire. Split shifts, tractors with lights, and when you weren't sleeping you'd be in the pub. Today that farm is now a vineyard, so the presenter began wondering what had happened to the great British hop.
The first thing he discovered is that there are only sixty hop farmers left.
The producer is Miles Warde.
