Episode 8
This week Liz Bonnin is on the tiny island of Lunga off the South West coast of Scotland for an encounter with a colony of the adorable Atlantic Puffin.
Ben Fogle is in Devon - joining the cowboys who drive their cattle across the tough terrain of Dartmoor each year the old fashioned way- on horseback!
And we are in Dorset with musician and actor Martin Kemp for a crabbing trip with the local fishermen and a trip down memory lane.   
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.
