Adrian visits the Owens at Raven Seat Farm to meet the latest addition to their family - baby Sidney who was born in a layby near Reeth on the way to the maternity hospital. He sees camcorder footage of the severe floods that washed around the farm earlier in the year, and talks to Amanda about the problems of living so far from their children's schools and to Clive about the possibility of their children one day taking over the farm. He helps Clive wash sheep in preparation for sending them to auction at Kirkby Stephen. He then goes to see the Wildman family in Kirkby Malham. It is the day that Will, their elder son, is leaving school to take on a more permanent role in the running of the family farm. He drives home from school in the farm's tractor! In Grassington he meets the original women whose nude calendar inspired the film Calendar Girls (2003), and watches rehearsals for an amateur production of the play by the Grassington Players.
