Farm Safety, Rural Broadband, Pasta made from Crickets!

With farming still one of the most dangerous occupations, a hands-on course is presenting farmers of the future with realistic accident situations they might encounter.

Dozens of people die every year while working on farms in the UK, with thousands more injured. Farming remains one of the most dangerous occupations in the country, despite many initiatives to try and make a difference. Now a hands-on course is preparing the farmers of the future for possible accidents they might encounter.

The Rural Services Network gives its reaction to Ofcom's decision to force BT to open up its cable network to competition. Will it make a real difference to rural areas where broadband is slow or non-existent?

And would you eat pasta made not from flour but from ground-up crickets? We hear about a new product being marketed by a company based in Thailand.

Presented by Charlotte Smith and produced by Emma Campbell.
