Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison explore the South Downs, discovering how the countryside inspired author Jane Austen, who lived in the village of Chawton, and naturalist and writer Gilbert White, whose 1789 book The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne is still popular today. Tom Heap investigates the `five-a-day' healthy eating campaign, asking whether it really is making people healthier, and Adam Henson turns to science for a new way of pig-rearing.
