7 May In this com­pi­la­tion pro­gramme fo­cus­ing on tales from the river­bank, Ellie Har­ri­son looks at var­i­ous con­ser­va­tion projects and clas­sic footage of elvers (baby eels), gi­ant ot­ters, the bull­rush har­vest and a bat sa­fari.

14 May Coun­try­file heads east to Suf­folk to catch up with the Wildlife Trust’s cam­paign to cre­ate a vast new na­ture re­serve in the Broads Na­tional Park, which would be the big­gest land pur­chase in the char­ity’s 55-year his­tory.

21 May The team are in the Clyde Val­ley in La­nark­shire. It was once known as the ‘Fruit Bas­ket of Scot­land’ with thriv­ing or­chards and large num­bers of fruit grow­ers. Coun­try­file ex­am­ines its juicy his­tory as well as see­ing how that her­itage is be­ing kept alive. With any luck, it will all be in full blos­som.
