Summary

Matt Baker is at the childhood home of Charles Darwin in Shropshire, helping to restore the garden's `thinking path', where as a young man the naturalist would spend his mornings in silent contemplation with his father. Ellie Harrison visits a project to create a habitat for the rare water vole and John Craven finds out about a plan that saved thousands of lives during the Second World War. Adam Henson handles rare ponies on the Queen's Balmoral estate in Scotland and Tom Heap reveals how and why walkers are occasionally injured - or in rare cases killed - by bulls and cows.
