Episode 4
 
This week Ben Fogle - and his faithful labrador Storm - head to North Wales to try their hand at one of rural Britain’s fastest growing sports, competitive sheep shearing. It’s an England vs Wales clash, as Ben joins the teams racing to shear their sheep the fastest. Liz Bonnin is on the stunning Isle of Mull in Scotland, spotting pods of migrating dolphins who are returning to our shores. And we’re at Sussex home of Zoe Ball, who’s giving us a tour of her own back garden before she heads off to the National Trust’s Standen House for some top tips of how to make her garden grow.  
 
Series overview
 
Countrywise: Guide To Britain sets out to inspire us all to explore the beautiful British countryside – with its hidden gems, natural wonders and great escapes.
 
Across the series Ben Fogle and Liz Bonnin will be our guides to the great outdoors - along with some well-known faces who'll share their love of their countryside with us.
 
The series also meets the people who call our countryside home – like mum of nine, best selling author and shepherdess Amanda Owen, as she welcomes yet another new arrival down on her Yorkshire Dales farm.
