09/10/19 Payment by results for farmers, badger behaviour in cull areas, fortified wine

We hear why paying for results rather than paying for promises is getting farmers on board with wildlife.

If farmers are given the chance to take control of wildlife schemes on their land, they work harder at it, and achieve better results. That's the conclusion of a report published today by the government, following a two year pilot in Yorkshire and East Anglia.
Badgers at the centre of culling areas could be spreading bovine tuberculosis further afield than expected, according to a study by scientists at the Zoological Society of London and Imperial College.
And we visit a vineyard growing grapes for fortified wine.

Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
