Badger cull, milk prices and seaweed foraging

Official data is released on bovine TB in cull zones, and milk processors increase the price they pay dairy farmers. Plus a former MasterChef finalist who forages for seaweed.

The latest report on Bovine TB in the first badger cull zones has been published. But does it give a definitive answer to whether or not culling badgers reduces the disease in cattle in Somerset and Gloucestershire? There's brighter news for UK dairy farmers as the large milk processors announce an increase in the amount they pay the producers. Seaweed is a food which has been eaten for thousands of years and now it's widely available in supermarkets and restaurants. We meet a former Masterchef finalist who forages for seaweed on the shores of the Outer Hebrides. Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Vernon Harwood.
