Join popular countryman Jack Hargreaves, as he embarks on a series of delightful expeditions through the English countryside. Enjoy his unrivalled knowledge of the simple life - from angling to horsing and nature to gardening - and reminisce about how things used to be when the countryside was still the sole preserve of country folk.
1. Appleby Fair / Ramming Time Once a year on the Wednesday after Derby Day, the gypsies meet on Gallows Hill in Appleby, and celebrate the animals given to them by nature. 2. New Forest Point-to-Point / Apple Grafting See how point-to-point racing really got its name. Nobody knows the course until they assemble in the early hours, and you go by your own route as long as you make the finish line! 3. Kingfishers / Model Carts When the great flood drowned out the kingfishers' burrows, the countryman dug them out and reared them in safety. He had to teach them to fish.
