Countryfile - 20/03/2011

Julia Bradbury and Jules Hudson head for mid-Wales to explore the Lake Vyrnwy Estate. It is on the market for 11 million pounds, making it one of the biggest land deals the country has ever seen. But what do you get for your money? Julia is also on a mission to pinpoint the tallest tree in Wales, while Jules discovers how you train a horse to take part in the equine equivalent of a marathon. John Craven finds out what lessons have been learned from the 2007 floods when he takes part in the biggest emergency exercise this country has ever seen. He also goes behind-the-scenes at the Environment Agency's test facility at Wallingford in Oxfordshire, where flood defence systems are being put through their paces. Plus, spring is in the air as Adam Henson prepares for one of the busiest events in the farming calendar - lambing.
