Farmers' Views on the Future After Brexit, Tomato Crops Under Glass in Vale of Evesham, the Future of Protected Food Names

Are farmers at LAMMA, the UK's largest agricultural machinery show in Peterborough, willing to open their cheque books in post-Brexit times? Sally Challoner tests their mood.

Are the farmers who're ogling the shiny new GPS-controlled tractors at LAMMA, the UK's largest agricultural machinery show in Peterborough, willing to open their cheque books in post-Brexit times? Sally Challoner gauges their mood and meets some farmers who're excited by the trading opportunities they see ahead of them within and beyond the EU's Single Market.

Sybil Ruscoe finds a similarly optimistic long-term attitude among tomato growers in the Vale of Evesham who've invested significantly in hydroponic and LED technology.

Why are so many dolphins being washed up on Cornish beaches? Sybil speaks to Abby Crosby, Cornwall Wildlife Trust's marine conservation officer.

And the future of the special status accorded to Protected Food Names - but will they still be protected after Brexit?

Presented by Sybil Ruscoe and produced by Mark Smalley.
