The Prince of Wales is to guest edit a special edition of the BBC One flagship Countryfile programme as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations.

Charles will talk about his passion for the countryside in interviews with Countryfile presenters Julia Bradbury and Matt Baker for the special edition of the weekly rural affairs programme which will air next month.

The programme will show Charles as he visits his rural initiatives aimed at improving the lives of people working in the countryside and will feature his organic farm in Gloucestershire.

Charles will also be shown visiting a south London school that has seen examination results improve after helping pupils reconnect with the soil by growing their own vegetables.
