Never mind Songs of Praise, it's Countryfile that hacks me off!
I quite enjoy it (in an acknowledging that it’s made for Sunday evening TV kind of way).
Matt is from Durham hill-farming stock and Adam is a hands-on Cotswolds gentleman farmer so they’re not exactly townies themselves and I enjoy seeing the different areas they visit. And, the weather forecast is pretty useful.
All in all, a good way to wind down at the end of the weekend 8)

I sometimes catch Country File when I’m at the In-laws’. It has its moments and it is better than 95% of what is on TV.
It’s not all ‘safe’ though. Wasn’t there some scandal about them ditching an older female presenter for younger, attractive, Ellie(?) a few years ago?Posted 4 years agomechmonkeyMember
Don’t normally watch it, but we watched the Price Charles special edition the other week, was pretty good (for TV).
I watched that too and came out of it thinking that big ears is actually a top bloke. The work he does with his charity group to regenerate our countryside and help young entrepreneurs is commendable. Not to mention the pachwork tweed/leather jacket he was sporting 😀Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I like Matt Baker and Julia Bradbury as presenters, and they usually seem to give them interesting features. Adam’s a **** though. “Farming’s really hard, that’s why I’m driving around in my 10th brand new 4×4 since we started filming, pissing around with rare breeds.” ****.
Getting furious at Adam the **** is my favourite bit if I’m honest. Or Matt failing amiably at some other pointless task and really not looking like be could give a crap.Posted 4 years agosenor jSubscriber

That’s true , everytime it’s on he seems to be driving a brand new piece of farm equipment with a new jacket.Posted 4 years agoBigButSlimmerBlokeMemberNorthwindSubscriber

Adam and his father have done/do a lot of good work in livestock circles and their Cotswold Wildlife Park is a great day out for the family.
Given his high profile I bet vehicle and machinery companies are throwing their wares at him to get product placement.
No problem with that- it’s the “oh farming is so hard” stuff that makes him a ****. Oh it’s so hard, if it wasn’t for the massive advert I get on the BBC every week I wouldn’t be able to afford as many collector’s edition cows. This one’s gold plated! Gotta catch em all!

What bugs me about the programme is the fact that Julia Bradbury wears a different set of clothes for almost every scene. Last night she was in a Mammut goretex cag which cost over £500 – yes more than £500 for a blooming cag!!!!!!!!!
So what ?
she probably earns enough money to buy nice stuff.
Or it gets given because its good advertising on TV.
You must really have to try very hard to give a stuff about that sort of thing 😐Posted 4 years ago
