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?

Ellie Harrison and Joe Crowley are in the Lake District to celebrate the 250th anniversary of William Wordsworth’s birth. They discover how his sister Dorothy and her writings were as influential as the beauty around him. And while Wordsworth’s poetry may lure many of us to the lakes, visitors can mean extra challenges.

So we’re also commemorating another significant anniversary – 50 years of Langdale and Ambleside Mountain Rescue. And Adam finds out where he might get the best prices for his rams – online or at a traditional livestock market?

What time is Countryfile on?

This week BBC Countryfile is on BBC One at 17:45, Sunday 4th October 2020.
