Bumper re-order for BBC2 rural format
Back to the Land scores 12-part run
7 Wonder has picked up a supersized order of BBC2’s Back to the Land with Kate Humble.
The 12 x 60-minute recommission follows March’s three-part debut run which picked up an average audience of 2m (8.8%) in a Tuesday 8pm slot.
Presented by Kate Humble, the series celebrates rural Britain by championing the UK’s most inspirational rural entrepreneurs.
The upcoming show will follow Humble as she meets aspirational and innovative businesses from around the country, from the South West coast of Cornwall to the New Forest.
The series was ordered by head of popular factual and factual entertainment David Brindley and will be executive produced by Alexandra Fraser and Sarah Trigg.
Trigg described the show as “a stylish factual format, which touches on elements of history, geography and tradition”.
She added: “What we all enjoy about the creative process of making it is witnessing these incredible and aspirational people doing what they love to keep the countryside alive.”
