Grey, grubby post-Christmas misery settling over you? C4 has the answer. Because even in dismal January, this new series suggests you’re just fine where you are. Farming is bloody hard work. But that’s only the half of it. In this most relentless yet capricious of trades, you can work your arse off and still get nowhere. This opening episode follows three ruddy-cheeked, tousle-haired youngsters as they attempt to eke a living out of the British countryside. Ed and Robbie want to be there, Nick most definitely does not. In fact, Nick hates it so much, he’s seemingly taken to bullying his sheep by daubing abuse on their wool. Failed pig auctions, frantic harvests and relationship problems all feature; it all adds up to the grass not necessarily being greener on the other side. Still, a very worthwhile insight into an embattled profession.
