Countryfile - 17/05/2009


Rural affairs. Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury head for the south Cotswolds as the area prepares for one of its busiest weekends of the year. Julia's at the Badminton Horse Trials to find out why the event, which is a firm favourite with the Royal Family, now attracts 'showbiz royalty' including Katie Price, better known as glamour model Jordan. Just fifteen miles away, Matt takes to the skies as he joins the crowds gathered for a celebration of vintage planes, before heading off to meet a Cotswolds couple who say the best way to get close to nature is by gardening in the nude. Down on the farm, Adam Henson tests out new farm machinery which promises to save money - and the planet - by reducing the amount of fertiliser needed to grow crops. Plus Katie Knapman discovers what makes Lundy Island such a special place 40 years after the National Trust acquired it for the nation, and the programme meets a man who has combined his passion for bikes and butchery to offer a unique service to farmers.
