Since 1988, BBC One’s ‘Countryfile’ has been airing across the country and is one of the channels most best-loved programmes.
‘Countryfile’ turns 30 on 24 July and will air three exceptional episodes to mark their milestone.
This summer the programme will take viewers to Windsor, Balmoral and Sandringham to explore the Queen’s lifelong attachment to rural Britain.
With permission from Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh, the three episodes are in conjunction with the 65th anniversary of Her Majesty’s coronation.
“I once had the great pleasure of meeting Her Majesty The Queen, and in our conversation, I soon realised that, like me, she loved her animals. It became clear that the working countryside and her animals were her passion,” Presenter Adam Henson said.
The episodes will give a unique insight into how these estates are run, sharing how actively involved both Her Majesty and Prince Philip have always been in their growth.
‘Countryfile’ reports on farming, investigates rural issues and celebrates the beauty and diversity of the British countryside.
Executive Editor Bill Lyons commented: “It’s a privilege to work on ‘Countryfile’ and a delight that the programme has reached its milestone 30th anniversary. We’ve shared many memorable moments with our viewers during those three decades, but we look to the future and hope to celebrate the beautiful British countryside for many years to come.”
