Farming Today This Week: Land ownership

Charlotte Smith visits Mark Tufnell on his Calmsden estate in Gloucestershire to discuss the practicalities and ethics of land ownership as well as the week's political events.

Charlotte Smith visits Mark Tufnell on his Calmsden estate in Gloucestershire to discuss land ownership - who owns what and who should own what in the future? As he shows Charlotte around, Mark, who is also Vice President of the Country Land and Business Association, gives his reaction to the week's political events and to Theresa Villiers's comments about preparations for a no-deal Brexit. They discuss Labour's proposals to transform the way land is owned and taxed, and the importance of conservation to the estate. All this set against the backdrop of a low-flying Biplane and a gaggle of rather enthusiastic geese.
