Ontelly

Countryfile - 31/05/2009


Julia Bradbury and Matt Baker head to the Norfolk Broads to mark the 20th anniversary of landmark legislation that gave the area official protection. They take to the water to find out about the Broads' rich boating tradition and meet the would-be millwrights hoping to keep this ancient trade alive. With jobs and housing harder to find in the countryside because of the credit crunch, John Craven looks at how rural Britain is battling for survival in the economic downturn. Down on the farm, Adam Henson adopts some rescue battery hens as he moves into small-scale egg production - and the rural enterprise which specialises in making the national instrument of Wales: the harp.
