Countryfile - 10/04/2011
Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison are in the heart of the countryside exploring Hampshire. Matt casts off for the opening of the trout season on the River Itchen, one of our premier chalk streams, which attracts fishermen from all over the world. On the banks of the river, Ellie is on the lookout for the wildlife that make this place home, but getting a glimpse requires some rather high tech equipment. Katie Knapman takes a trip down very different Hampshire river - the Hamble - to explore the history of sailing, from traditional gigs to modern day yachts. Back on dry land, Jules Hudson finds how gun dog trainers keep their dogs' senses sharp out of season. Elsewhere John Craven investigates what impact the supermarkets have on independent traders in the countryside. Adam Henson travels to the Channel Islands to find out about the extraordinary tale of one woman's fight to preserve one of our rarest breeds of goat - the Golden Guernsey.
