Countryfile is the popular BBC One show which celebrates the people and places of the British countryside and explores stories making news.
Kent features in an episode of the new series where amidst tennis season, Matt Baker finds out about Wimbledon strawberries and gets to grips with the harvest at Hugh Lowe Farms. Fellow presenter Naomi Wilkinson meets a couple who turned their love of wildlife into an animal rescue centre, looking after everything from hedgehogs to flocks of jackdaws and magpies and at the White Cliffs of Dover she learns about the long history of channel swimming. John Craven meets a farmer who is growing Chinese vegetables and produce, from pak choi to chrysanthemums.
Dover is home to several renowned locations including the port, connecting the UK with the European mainland, Dover Castle which towers above the town, signalling Dover’s strategic importance in the defence of the country and the White Cliffs of Dover, one of the most recognised landmarks in Britain. Dover has been used in productions such as The Tunnel: Sabotage (2016), Great British Railway Journeys – Series 7 (2016) and Missing (2009).
The Kent episode of Countyfile will air on Sunday 10 July 2016 at 18:00 on BBC One.
