Enjoy a Cornish Coastal Christmas with Countryfile this Sunday

It's Christmas, and Matt and Ellie are in the tiny Cornish fishing village of Coverack, helping the locals get the place set for the festivities.

Matt joins the members of the Coverack Christmas Tree Committee as they head off to the woods to choose this year’s tree. And, as Matt discovers, big trees don’t squeeze easily through narrow streets. Ellie is doing her bit for wildlife by making a Christmas wreath made entirely of bird food. Will the tame robin she meets eat out of her hand? 

Meanwhile, John is in Truro finding out how the Cornish love of carol-singing gave rise to the most famous carol service in the world. Tom’s in Hampshire to meet the community who are getting behind their fishermen is the most festive way possible. Adam’s on the Cornish farm where Christmas Day is one of the busiest of the whole year, and Sean Fletcher gets a Christmas cookery masterclass from Rick Stein. And we finish up back in Coverack where Ellie joins Matt and all the villagers in a last minute rush to get everything set for the big Christmas lights switch-on.
