Ellie makes a beeline for the ancient woodland and finds herself swinging from one of their prized oaks in search of a rare bee. Adrian Chiles is in Dorking to meet the creator of a weird and wonderful take on the traditional horse-drawn carriage, while Adam Henson catches up with students on a new initiative to introduce young people from the city to careers in agriculture.
