“It leaves you with a gentle yearning for an office with views of dewy mountains.”

KATE HUMBLE: BACK TO THE LAND, BBC2

“Former Springwatch presenter Kate Humble appears to have hit on a way to take Countryfile’s bucolic format and inject it with a little mid-week urgency. It leaves you with a gentle yearning for an office with views of dewy mountains.” Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

“What made Back to the Land more than a reality Good Life was that this was also a business programme. It was Escape to the Country with jeopardy.” Andrew Billen, The Times

“What’s not to love about a bunch of nice people doing nice things we would never dare do? And they’re not beekeeping/chocolate-tempering/seaweed-drying for money or pitting themselves against each other in a Great Rural Hoedown either.” Chitra Ramaswamy, The Guardian

“From the bee farm entirely dependent on good weather to the former office worker now trying to sell seaweed to Japan, everything was a case of hard work and huge uncertainty, but that uncertainty being a lot preferable to the slow shutting-down of the countryside.” Matt Baylis, Daily Express
