About this programme

Off the coast of Kent, Matt Baker travels to Elmley Marshes on the Isle of Sheppey, meeting farmers managing the land with conservation in mind and joining wildlife enthusiasts on a bird safari. Further inland, Ellie Harrison visits Knole House, where work is under way to repair and catalogue everything from photos to works of art. Meanwhile, Helen Skelton finds out how Wiltshire inspired famous war poet Siegfried Sassoon, and Tom Heap discovers there are hundreds of thousands of disused mine shafts beneath the British countryside.
