Last summer, the National Trust took part in the BBC’s Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace. Over four days, we staged a series of debates and conversations about our nation’s love for the countryside and the importance of looking after it. We also discussed the role of farmers in growing our food and caring for our countryside, and the wellbeing benefits of connecting with nature and the outdoors. We are now delighted to present some of the best moments from these conversations as a series of nine podcast episodes.

If you’d like to be there in person for BBC Countryfile Live 2020, go to to join the mailing list and for ticket information.
