Season 4 Episode 1 of 4

Documentary following life during winter in the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. In Grasmere, father-and-son shepherding team Peter and Robert Bland have worked Herdwick sheep all their lives. They're heading up the fell, like they do every season, to gather their sheep. This time, the flock must be brought to the farm for pregnancy testing, to see how busy spring will be. Not all journeys to school are the same, and in Hawes in the rural Yorkshire Dales, the local bus service goes above and beyond to ensure all pupils get to school, no matter where they live. Narrated by Ian McMillan
