Prince Charles and his Gloucestershire farm on special edition of BBC One show, Countryfile
The Prince of Wales spoke of his concerns for Britain's rural areas in a special edition of the television show Countryfile, which was partly filmed at his Tetbury home.
The 25th anniversary show, guest edited by soon-to-be-granddad Prince Charles, aired last night on BB1 One.
HRH said it was important to "work in harmony with nature" for the benefit of future generations and highlighted the problems facing farming communities.
He was shown visiting rural initiatives aimed at improving the lives of people working in the countryside and the show featured his organic farm in Gloucestershire, where he spoke about his favourite countryside activities of walking and building hedges.
"Walking is a terribly important thing for me, rather like some people need a cigarette, I need a walk," he said.
"It's riveting, by going for a walk I find it stimulates thinking and reflecting. So I spend my life stamping about and I have things I write down. That's where the best thoughts come from."
Charles spoke to Countryfile presenters Julia Bradbury, Cotswold farmer Adam Henson and Matt Baker and said thought needed to go to what kind of world we were handing on to our successors.
