Adam Henson is with Blenheim's head shepherd finding out how to manage a flock of 1,500 sheep on a World Heritage site.

Tom Heap looks at the impact plastics are having on the environment. Anita Rani is joined by the winners of the Young Presenter Talent search.

Anita and ten-year-old Matilda get hands-on with hedgehogs and discover why, despite being endangered nationally, their numbers are on the rise in the grounds of the Blenheim estate. Thirteen-year-old Archie teams up with Anita to find out why fishing has increased 50 per cent amongst under-16s. While Archie gets some angling advice from a teenager helping to get more youngsters involved, Anita meets comedian and fishing fanatic Paul Whitehouse for his top tips.
