In the first of five Countryfile Spring Diaries John Craven is exploring the counties at the very heart of England and celebrating their Spring beauty, wildlife and cultural sites including a visit to Shakespeare Country, stopping off at the childhood home of Anne Hathaway. Margherita Taylor is investigating how cuts to police officer numbers are affecting rural villages like Martock in Somerset who haven't had a police station in their village since the 1980's. Since 2010, England and Wales have cut 56,000 police officers, a shocking 31% drop in numbers, and demand is rising. It looks like criminals are now targeting the places where the thin blue line is stretched to the limit, and in the face of a spate of crime and anti- social behaviour the people of Martock have had to take the law into their own hands. Jules Hudson is on the case finding out about a new way to realise the dream of owning a rural retreat. With church attendances dwindling year on year, many places of worship are lying empty and there are over one hundred on the currently on the market ripe for renovation. Jules meets the owner of one stunning church conversion in Exeter and the heritage builder who has just taken on the biggest church conversion of his career. Paul Martin is discovering that our back gardens can be a convenient snack stop for cheeky creatures who are always on the lookout for a free meal. Otter numbers in particular are on the rise in the UK and Paul has been meeting a man whose battle to save his fish stocks, turned into an unlikely love affair! Steve Brown is in Gloucestershire, learning more about a future where British grown fruits like Apples, Pears and Cherries, could become expensive delicacies! Due to climate change the blossom on fruit trees has been arriving earlier each year, and flowering too soon could mean that there are fewer bees around – which is bad news. 70% of our crops depend on bees doing their bit for pollination at the right time for a successful harvest. What will the future look like if the bees and blossom no longer line up perfectly in the narrow 8 day window when pollination can happen, will scientists manage to imitate nature using drones? John also reveals the best places to see spring wildlife in the UK, and Tom Heap reveals that rural hedgehog numbers are falling faster than their city cousins.
Martin Roberts, Lucy Alexander, Dion Dublin and Martel Maxwell follow the stories of three sets of renovators who have purchased property at auction.

Right answers take them closer to the big money, but if at any stage they give an Impossible answer, they will immediately be knocked out. The winner of every show faces the £10,000 question.

After ten years at sea, working on cruise ships, Morgan settled in Southampton and bought a house, which he has been doing up ever since. After fixing up the house, he now needs help with the garden, and he has a healthy five thousand pound budget to put to getting it perfect. This sociable bachelor wants a party space, where he can entertain his friends. But, while he wants to enjoy his garden, he is less keen to enjoy it with his neighbours, as well : so, he also needs some privacy from all the over looking windows! Morgan has other important requirements as well; as a former cruise ship worker, he wants a nod to his years at sea, with a water feature prominent in his garden. And, finally, as a passionate and proud Welshman, he is determined that his garden has a feeling of his homeland in it. With such a strong and detailed brief, the pressure is on Charlie Dimmock and Harry and David Rich to come up with a pair of impressive designs, one of which Morgan will choose to be his new garden. In the design pitch, obviously Welsh born Harry and David, go "all-in" on the Welsh theme; with the use of steel, to remind Morgan of the Welsh steel industry, slate decking, inspired by the famous Welsh slate, and a "chill out" zone to their party garden designed to remind Morgan of Welsh woodlands, complete with popular Welsh trees like the Mountain Ash. Charlie focuses her design around a central viewing path that takes the eye directly to a large water feature, complete with a water blade to create the soothing sound of running water. Once the designers have pitched, it's Morgan who has the hardest job : picking which of the two designs to plump for! Then it's time for Morgan to hand over the keys to his back garden to the design team and their trusted landscapers, to create something that delivers everything he wants. So, can the winning design, pull off the impressive, high end part garden required here?
Today in the Repair Shop, Jay Blades and the team bring three treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life. Gramophone guru Tim Weeks takes on the repair of an antique wooden phonograph, brought into the Repair Shop by Nicola Dean, whose father was an avid collector of phonographs and gramophones. This particular model : an Edison Opera Phonograph : was his prized possession and the centre-piece of his collection. However, it suffered badly in a collision with a group of over-enthusiastic small children, and now not only does it not work, but the distinctive wooden horn has become separated from the main body of the item. Tim must call upon all his experience : as well as the wood restoration skills of fellow expert Will Kirk : to get this marvellous music machine singing once again. Upholsterer Sonnaz Nooranvary is faced with an unusual challenge when an armchair is brought in to the Repair Shop, complete with a colourful rug stitched into the fabric. Much loved by three generations, the chair survived its trip from pre-war Nazi Germany but has become battered and faded over time. It takes help of fine art conservator Lucia Scalisi to unravel the mystery of the colourful rug's provenance. And Steve Fletcher takes on the repair of a battered old miner's lamp, which once saved the life of its owner Hubert John when he was caught up in an underground roof fall at the Hook Colliery in Pembrokeshire. Hubert's granddaughter Rita is hopeful that Steve can get the lamp burning brightly once more, while preserving the bumps and scratches that saved Hubert's life.
The quiz returns for a twenty-first series in which contestants try to score as few points as possible by plumbing the depths of their general knowledge to come up with the answers no-one else could think of. Presented by Alexander Armstrong and co-host Richard Osman.
