In this groundbreaking series, presenter Kate Humble gets her hands dirty helping to make sure as many lambs as possible survive those crucial first days after birth. She is joined by Countryfile presenter and farmer Adam Henson and the family who have been running this farm for generations, the Beavans.
The stakes are high as the Beavans rely on a successful season for the future of their business. And not every lamb will make it. From the glimmer of hope offered by a hypothermic lamb being nursed back to health to the heartbreaking sight of tottering newborns rejected by their mothers, Kate, Adam and the Beavans have their work cut out.
Alongside the day-to-day action on the farm Lambing Live delves deeper into the secret life of sheep. Throughout the week Adam is on hand to offer expert advice and examine the wider issues facing sheep farmers in the UK today. From agriculture and history to economics and veterinary science, Adam tells the story of sheep farming in Britain, past and present.
