One of the BBC's most popular programmes, Countryfile airs weekly on BBC One and reports on rural, agricultural and environmental issues in the UK.


Launched in 1988, Countryfile replaced the long-running show Farming with the aim of covering a broader view of the countryside. John Craven is the show's most long-standing presenter, working on the programme for more than 30 years after joining the show the following year.

Regular presenters also include Matt Baker, Anita Rani, Ellie Harrison, Tom Heap, Adam Henson. Plus, Joe Crowley, Helen Skelton, Charlotte Smith, Margherita Taylor and Steve Brown also appear on the show.

Here is our weekly TV guide to Countryfile, including what's coming up on the show and what time it airs on BBC one.

Who are the Countryfile presenters this Sunday?

Margherita Taylor and Adam Henson are the main presenters on Countryfile this week.

What is on BBC Countryfile this week?

Margherita Taylor is in the Quantock Hills to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, one of the leading lights of the Romantic movement that took its inspiration from the beauty of the British landscape. The Quantocks were a huge influence on Coleridge, who was an inveterate walker in the area when he was living here in Somerset, and Margherita joins some young people to put quill to paper.

Margherita also visits the Somerset Levels, which this year is becoming the UK’s second 'super' national nature reserve. She comes face to face with some of the wetlands’ tiniest residents and discovers a legend or two.

Adam introduces the Irish and English rivals who will do battle in this year’s One Man and His Dog competition, while Tom examines the crisis facing pig farmers. And, as we prepare to ramble in aid of BBC Children in Need, we meet remarkable 13-year-old Saul, who refuses to let dwarfism stand in the way of adventure.

What time is Countryfile on?

This week’s BBC Countryfile is on BBC One at 6pm, Sunday 25th September, 2022.
