BBC used to be accurate I dont know where to go? I used to watch the BBC for accurate programming but after watching this...i might as well start watching Fox news for more accurate content. This programme is an insult to all of the very hard working, skilled and trained, farmers in the UK. It does not show what is needed to work on the land and for some reason likes to represent it as a hobbie. What's next "Send 'em down"... 25 have a go Judges send criminals down for live... or community service... at the end of the show, the worst is offered a job. fedupfarmer11:58 am Thu 3 Mar
question where do they find these bozo's for these programs? Ive never seen the adverts?
perhaps they only give out details who score 10 or less on mensa tests!?!?!? hehehehehe8:15 pm Tue 1 Mar
Disappointing I must confess that this programme had the potential to be something great and informative yet sadly it feels like nothing more than a new version of the generation game with its tasks barely touching the surface of what the true fundamentals of small scale farming are all about.Never did a think i would see the day that the basis of being a good farmer would be judged on how well you can move a pig anti clockwise! Very disappointing. Supergoose6:57 pm Tue 1 Mar
BBC gone bad I must agree. I use to work for the BBC making factual programmes, and there' nothing factual about this! Farmerboy2:48 pm Tue 1 Mar
Pure Garbage I've seen 5 minutes of this, thought I was going to vomit at the end. Programs made by idiots for idiots. windy_miller9:04 pm Tue 22 Feb
Load of tripe If they want a go at real farming they can come and have a couple of weeks here, we have 50 acres and my hubby farmed scince he was a boy, and for the last 10 years has had to do full time work also. farmerzwife3:48 pm Thu 17 Feb
When does the air ambulance land. Fires on farms are very very rare,except when ever jimmys got a film crew around ( just like Jimmys last farm seris )a fire breaks out.Know sign of the man with the angle grinder that caused that spark ????
Ever seen a farmer ploughing wearing a safty helmet? She did look good though.Thats BBC telly sadly these days. mouseman5:22 pm Wed 2 Feb
what would I do with my plot? I would divide it ito smaller plots and invite celebrity couples to have a go at "farming" the land encouraging them to have some cute livestock to ensure good viewing (animals or children to provide potential for things to go hilariously wrong) - then (with the help of good camera work and informative voice over) I'd have a winning formula to make money from my plot. sarcyfarmer8:50 pm Tue 1 Feb
