Annual Photo Comp
Much as I like the show I do not appreciate the judges mickey taking of the entrants work. Jo Brand, comedienne does not provide any knowlegeable input whatever and its not fair to put down peoples efforts in order to raise a laugh. It spoilt an otherwise well connect nature programme.

excellent
the only prog of its kind that I know of. Very informative with an easy going style that keeps you interested. On the whole the presenters are ideal.

Ignorant, ill informed disinformation post in a guise to promote nuclear. Hydro, Solar and wind generated power is utterly sustainable after initial investment. The powers that be do not want cheap electricity, they want expensive electricity generated by oil, gas & coal powered generation plants. They want to keep everyone reliant on fossil fuels (Oil mainly) so they can control the Global economic situation by the petro dollar!

Wind Farms
I was dismayed by the feature on wind farms.You need to send a technical expert to discuss pro's and con's with the operators.The operators quote wind farm capacity yetfail to mention actual generation is about 25% of this. Equivalent backup power generation capacity has to be on standby for when the wind speed is outside the turbine operating limits. The cost of wind power is more than £150/megawatthour compared with £100 or less for other types of generation. Our politicians have made a mess of energy policy through ignorance and timidity - we should have decided on nuclear 10 years ago.

Saddened by failure to research the issue
I was very disappointed by the failure to accurately research and report on the impact of wind farms. It appeared that the whole article was taken straight from the PR brochure of a developer rather than being based on the facts. For example, good for the environment. What about the CO2 cost of their construction? Or the CO2 cost of the inefficient gas powered generators are the only type able to adjust to the fluctuations in power output of a wind turbine. You mentioned the jobs created by the developers, but failed to mention the job losses in the tourism industry. You mentioned the profits for landowners. But failed to mention that government policy is to build windfarms on land controlled by the government so the subsidies added to our energy bills are just another form of taxation. Very very disappointed about such an inaccurate report.

I think that countryfile is a great programme with features about the countryside and activities for people to have a go at.

Julia Bradbury
She not the type of person wanted on this program, far too full of herself. In Sundays program one would have thought she was the only person ever to been pregnant.

Get rid of Julia Bradbury
Julia Bradbury is totally unsuited to Countryfile. Her aggressive presentation style is more suited to Watchdog!! Fashion jackets are all she seems to bring to the programme. Elie is so much more relaxed and comfortable with the countryside. Please, please can we get rid of Julia Bradbury??

We love Cranes
I see that cranes are being reintroduced to Somerset. We live in France and it is a wondrous thing to see the migration of these birds. I would be interested to know if the birds that are being introduced to Somerset will be expected in the end to migrate too?

Wentworth Castle
Could your presenters get their facts correct please. Wentworth Castle is on the outskirts of Barnsley not Sheffield.It's in the Barnsley Borough but Sheffield is approximately ten miles away.

I clicked rate expecting it to ask what rate I wanted. I guess I rated it zero when I actually really love this programme as I live and work in the country.

ROMANS INTRODUCED BUNNIES NOT NORMANS
ref the programme broadcast Sunday 10th October 2010. I am amazed that we would get a so-called 'expert' on native species claiming that rabbits were brought to Britain in the 12th century. See http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1487787/Romans-introduced-the-rabbit.html which confirms what most of the audience know i.e. that rabbits came with the Romans if not before. The problem with such carelessness is that then the audience begin to wonder what else is misinformation. Sorry. You ought to run a correction on the programme too.

Why isn't Countryfile online?
Why can't I watch Countryfile on BBC iPlayer anymore? I adore that show.

Julia Bradbury and Matt Smith
These 'Blue Peter' type presenters spoil Countryside. Why can't we have people with cred like Adam and Ellie. At least they can speak properly!

Much better now
Now that Julie Bradbury and Matt Baker present most of it, it is much more watchable. It is more interesting and is more appealing to the younger generation (i.e me) I think when it was just John Craven presenting it, it was very boring but with the new presenters the show has had a burst of life. Fantastic show.

If she's not in it, it's worth watching.

Organic farming
Why not visit the Riverford Farm in devon which, with sister farns all over the country, no longer supplies supermarkets but runs a box scheme for truly organic veg, meat and dairy products?

Ruined
Can't watch this at 1am sinxce the screen is half size with that irritating sign-language woman tdominating the picture. Why don;t deaf people just press 88 and read the subtitles? Otherwise these should have some of the spare freeview channels allocated to them.

Julia Bradbury
Is an attractive, talented presenter and ten times as acceptable as Mr Insincerity Little nicky Campbell.

How dare you?
That's not a sunday slot thats a well respected BBC presenter. Language like that is hardly child friendly either.
Big Bob 7:22pm Sun 3 Jan
 
   
Timing
What was wrong with the old Sunday slot? This new slot clashes with too many other things and is not child friendly.

good link
the new format works well to link the general public with our country side. the presenters help bridge that gap, after all its not called farming today or stuffy little country village weekly is it?
berty B 1:02pm Sun 29 Nov
 
   
The old presenters
Please bring back Tom and Charlotte and not Julia. The previous presenters had a real connection with the countryside. Julia in particular does not and comes across quite agressive. The BBC must stop getting rid of 'real' presenters because of age or that they don't consider them to be 'eye candy'.

Julia is a breath of fresh air to Countryfile. Shes a fab presenter, prob the best on TV, really knows what shes talking about, loves what she does and is so enthusiastic! This all shows in the programmes she is involved in. I love the whole of Countryfile, its intresting and educational, especially love The Farm, but Julia is the reason I keep on watching it! Shes The Best! Big up the JB!!!
