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, Charlotte Smith 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.

What is on BBC Countryfile this week?

 Sean Fletcher goes wild in the Hambleden Valley in Buckinghamshire with a whistlestop trike tour of a chocolate box landscape that has been the beautiful backdrop for many TV dramas and films. But how can we breathe new life into the area?
Sean finds out how the old cottage industry of lace-making is poised for a comeback, and he saddles up to meet a couple opening up their farm to enable safer riding in this corner of the countryside.
Adam Henson is busy with some new arrivals, and as picking season dawns, Charlotte Smith investigates whether UK farmers can cover any shortfall in the number of seasonal farm workers needed to gather their harvests.
