What is on BBC Countryfile this week?

This week Anita Rani and Matt Baker are visiting The Blean, an ancient woodland in the heart of Kent, to get an exclusive look at a wilding project like no other. Matt comes face to face with the beast that will hopefully make this conservation scheme a reality – bison – and Anita finds out about a sleepy success story: dormice are being breed here to boost the numbers in the wild.

We also revisit the Auchlyne hunting estate in Scotland to catch up with Emma, the incoming laird. Deep in wilds of Gloucestershire we get a very special look at some of the UK’s most elusive creatures, pine martens, and down on Adam’s farm one of the driest springs on record is causing big problems.
