Episode 5: Roast Potatoes and Roups

Summary

A Shetland farmer arrives at the livestock market, relying on auctioneer Finlay McIntyre to get the cash he needs to feed his flock over the winter months. There's a crisis in the kitchen when a deep fat fryer fails with lunch minutes away and 900 portions of potatoes required, and auctioneer Charlie sells all the worldly goods of two farming brothers who are retiring after 50 years - although things don't go as planned when their trusty tractor lets them down at a crucial moment.
