child-like view on country pass-times and lifestyles.
This program is laughed at within the UK for it's innocent view on agriculture and country lifestyle with deliberate omission of contentious and informative facts.
There are little or no details on EU subsidies, finances of farmers, practises of husbandry, and land ownership.
Issues such as factory farming, social isolation and suicide, the relation between supermarkets, the economy and initial farming provision, rural racism, disease control and fox hunting are given a wide birth.
What might be an informative conduit between TV viewing city folk tax payers and the countryside is wasted on distractive and cute optimistic individual scenarios.
Classic Sunday morning viewing for city people with a hangover who engage with the nostalgic frisson towards the main presenter.
Famous in the UK for his sanitised and wooden style of presenting a young persons news program in the 80's called "John Cravens News Round".
Now he is continuing to sanitise and uninfrom, then grow old, like some bland antipathies to Sir David Attenborough.
John Craven, an entirely professional presenter who kept his head down professionally and was rewarded with this pensionable program continues to uniform.
