Episode Summary

Ellie Harrison and John Craven are in and around Oxenhope in West Yorkshire. They see how the county is gearing up for the start of the Tour de France. Ellie gets on her bike and lends her wheels to the artist using the Yorkshire hills as a canvas. John Craven talks to the farmers about what it means to have this giant art in their fields and then hooks up with the cycling artist who has immortalised England's steepest incline in glass. Ellie tells the tale of a world-beating woman cyclist who took on the men back in her day and beat them. Meanwhile Tom's investing the use of neonicotinoid pesticides and Adam travels back to Snowdonia to meet the young farmer who won the farm! Plus, more than a year since the European Commission decided to restrict the use of an insecticide that's thought to contribute to the decline of the British bee, Tom Heap investigates the impact of this controversial decision on farmers and asks whether the evidence for a ban is any stronger twelve months on.moreless
