Lord Krebs tells Charlotte Smith why a government consultation on gene editing is good for both farmers and consumers and could help us produce food more productively in the future. For the first time in Northern Ireland five peregrine falcon chicks have been found on a single nest, and Conor Macauley has been to watch the dramatic unfolding of their early life. With a quarter of native mammals under threat of extinction, Professor Fiona Mathews explains what part farming can play in their recovery. The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Select Committee say that the food chain may have coped well during this global pandemic, but there may be bigger challenges to overcome in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
