The ever-game Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison travel to Cornwall where they seek out the bits that tourists rarely, if ever, get to see. Of course, that includes the tin mines; Baker heads underground for a history lesson and to hear plans to revive the once-flourishing industry that died out in the late 20th century.

Harrison, meanwhile, takes to the water to explore the wreckage of a naval frigate, now home to thriving colonies of marine wildlife. But it’s not all fun – farmer Adam Henson looks at a disease that could wreak havoc on this year’s lambing season.
