Episode 2
This week on Countrywise Guide to Britain we continue our tour of the spectacular countryside - inspiring us all to pull on our wellies pack a picnic and get out and explore the great outdoors this weekend.
In this episode Ben Fogle gets very close to nature as he takes a chilly naked dip in one of Snowdonia’s hidden lakes; Liz Bonnin is in Galloway in Scotland and its Dark Skies Park with a group of inner city kids - to inspire them with a nocturnal safari and the magic of the stars; and we are in a remote corner of the Yorkshire Dales to meet Shepherdess Amanda Owen and her family as they welcome baby number 9 into the flock. 
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.
