Change on the Way

Charlotte Smith joins the annual farming jamboree in London, the Farmers' Weekly Awards. Economist Dieter Helm lays out his vision for a post-CAP industry.

Brexit means Brexit. But what does it mean for British farmers? No other industry is so closely linked to Brussels as agriculture, which still gets nearly 40% of the EU's annual budget. In this ten part series, Charlotte Smith talks to farmers, politicians and policy experts. She explores the history of British farming, and the options for the UK after it has left the Common Agricultural Policy. In episode one, Charlotte joins the annual farming jamboree in London, the Farmers' Weekly Awards. The economist Dieter Helm lays out his vision for a post-CAP industry. And in Perthshire, cousins Martin and Roddy Kennedy explain the financial realities of hill farming.
Producer: Chris Ledgard.
