Jimmy Doherty's Farming Heroes
Capped by: Golficus
Five years ago, Jimmy Doherty gave up life in the city to start his own farm. Now he wants to see what other farmers
have achieved. As the world food crisis grows, what happens to farming will affect us all. So in this new series, Jimmy
is travelling the country to meet the people shaping the future of British farming.
He starts his journey in the east of England, where farming is about big machines and large-scale production. He has to
test his own doubts about whether big does mean bad.
Episode 2 - Wales (22 July 2008)
This week he's in Wales where farmers have turned farming on its head. They use daffodils to tackle Alzheimer's, garlic
to combat the deadly side effects of cows and Kiwi science to create super sheep.
Episode 3 - North of England (29 July 2008)
Jimmy Doherty visits the north of England, where farmers are fighting back after some tough years. To see how they've
done that, Jimmy joins in on a hillside sheep round-up, harvests rhubarb by candlelight, and hacks his way through a
willow forest destined to produce electricity. Finally, he pits his own rare-breed pork in a public taste-test against meat
from a pig claimed to be the most modern in the world.
Episode 4 - Northern Ireland (5 August 2008)
In Northern Ireland, farmers are putting a new twist on traditional ways. Jimmy discovers the secret of making chemical
free bacon, the art of ploughing, why the UK is still in the grip of the disease that caused the original Irish potato famine,
and investigates how stress-free animals make better meat.
Episode 5 - Scotland (12 August 2008)
Jimmy visits the Highlands of Scotland, where the scenery is spectacular but the farming is tough. Scottish farmers are
pioneering new ways to make the best from poor quality soil. Jimmy discovers how forests are expanding, fish farms
are cleaning up their act and reindeer are making a comeback in Scotland. And why there's a fortune to be made from
Episode 6 - West of England (19 August 2008)
In the final part of his journey, Jimmy heads to the West of England. It is picture-book rural Britain, but also a region
full of small farmers with big ideas about how food production needs to change. Jimmy meets the mavericks who are
finding ways to make organics cheaper, keep food local and bring a dead cow back to life. And he discovers Britain's
only underground farm.
