Christmas special this week with Countryfile

It's Christmas and Countryfile celebrates in high old style at Bamburgh Castle on the wild and beautiful Northumbrian coast.

12th December 2016

Matt Baker decks the halls and gets the place ready for a big Countryfile Christmas party. Anita Rani goes on a festive forage with a jewellery maker who turns natural materials into stunning decorations. Anita also sees what it takes to make an award-winning Christmas pudding. John Craven is on Lindisfarne discovering what the first Christmases in these islands would have been like. He then meets the makers of those old monks' favourite tipple - mead.

Ellie Harrison gives some hints and tips on how to look after wildlife when the temperature drops. Adam Henson joins the hill shepherd watching her flocks, and Tom Heap wonders if a lack of bell ringers could cause some churches to fall silent this Christmas. Then it's all back to Bamburgh Castle to tuck in to the festive feast Matt has laid on for the presenters and their guests.
