Margherita Taylor investigates the issue of litter in our oceans, with 5000 pieces of plastic pollution to be found per mile on British beaches. She sees the work of a dedicated team of volunteers who urgently rescue UK animals that become dangerously entangled in the waste that humans leave behind. The Divers Marine Life Rescue volunteers regularly have to free seals from fishing lines which become embedded in their bodies and cause life threatening injuries. A common dolphin found stranded in an estuary is also transported urgently back to the waves, by car! Paul Martin is at Hidcote Arts and Crafts garden in Gloucestershire. At this time of year they are busy planting up fifty terracotta pots for the summer ahead, and Paul picks up top tips and tricks from gardener Gillie Boyle, to keep container plants packed with colour and interest for the summer months. Some of the pots at Hidcote are as old as the house and occasionally need to be replaced with faithful period replicas. Paul heads to Whichford Pottery Studio, responsible for making 97,500 of the red ceramic poppies seen at the tower of London in 2014, to try his hand at throwing an enormous terracotta pot, with hilarious results! Jules Hudson is in Scotland meeting veterans who are coping with PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder. Many ex-service men and women struggle when they return to civvy street, and for some just leaving the house can trigger traumatic memories. The Bravehound charity run by Fiona Mc Donald provides these ex-soldiers with specially trained dogs to help them with everything from fetching their medication to waking them from the nightmares they suffer. Jules also meets a new recruit, Labrador puppy Judy and hears that early stage scientific research suggest that dogs can detect changes in the stress level hormones of humans, enabling them to provide the much needed emotional support that PTSD sufferers need. Steve Brown is on the trail of a deadly new disease called RDH2 which can kill our pet rabbits. There is no cure, and the virus has been cutting a swathe through wild rabbit populations too which are down by sixty percent. Scientist Dr Diana Bell explains that this disease has crossed over into the hare population too, and if your pet rabbit roams free in the garden it could easily be infected. The only way to avoid it is to get vaccinated, and Steve accompanies a family of rabbit owners to the vet, to find out why the vaccine against RDH2 is so important. John also reveals the best places in the UK to see Spring flowers and Tom Heap investigates the reasons why rural areas see slower response times when they call the fire services.

The Garden Rescue team are in Byfleet, Surrey to help stylish octogenarian Gay. She wants a garden where she can sit out all year long; she is often out there from as early as February enjoying the birds and the wildlife that come calling. However, since her late husband passed away, she has not been able to keep up with her garden and wants somewhere simple to manage but welcoming to her and her many friends and family who are always dropping by! The Rich Brothers and Arit Anderson, the new recruit to the Garden Rescue team, are only too happy to come to her aid. Their task, to provide an easy to maintain, smart garden that's suitable for "all seasons" and that, also, honours and preserves the memory of Gay's late husband. As ever, the two design teams go head to head; but who will win... Will it be Arit's garden, which uses repeating circle motifs to create interest in an otherwise small and featureless space and gives Gay a curved wooden seat surrounded by bright flowers from which to sit and entertain? Or will it be the brother's paved courtyard garden, filled with elegant multi-stemmed trees? The decision is Gay's. And, more importantly, can the three gardeners, with the help of their regular landscape team, successfully deliver the winning garden before the sun sets, despite a torrential rain storm mid build?
Today in the Repair Shop, Jay Blades and the team bring three treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life. Metalworker Dominic Chinea uses all his expertise to make a dilapidated and unsafe vintage go-kart roadworthy once again. Made by iconic toy manufacturer Triang, the go-kart has been loved to near destruction by two generations of children, and owner Mervyn is keen to see it be enjoyed by his grandchildren. But before it can be ridden again, Dom needs to remake the seat, address the damaged paintwork, and call upon the skills of bike restorer Tim Gunn to fix up the rickety wheels. Ceramics conservator Kirsten Ramsay faces an unusual challenge in the shape of a charming little papier maché cat figurine, hand-made by Joan de Bethel in 1953 as a gift to her future husband David. They didn't realise it at the time, but this turned out to be a highly significant prototype, as Joan and David ended up devoting themselves full-time to crafting thousands of these highly collectible ceramic cats. This, the original De Bethel Cat, has seen much better days and is in dire need of conservation, posing a huge challenge for Kirsten, working in a medium she's not familiar with. And master saddlemaker Suzie Fletcher is called upon to restore a hand-crafted leather gun slip, commissioned 30 years ago by Kim Davey as a gift for his father's 60th birthday. It's a an item of huge emotional significance for Kim, and Suzie calls upon all her care and attention to lovingly breathe new life back into this cherished item.

Jamie: Drag Queen at 16, produced by Firecracker Films (makers of the award winning Big Fat Gypsy Wedding), is a moving and uplifting documentary following the emotional story of teenager Jamie Campbell, as he makes a bold step on his difficult journey into adulthood. The revealing, thought-provoking hour-long film shows Jamie battling prejudice from his community, and even within his own family, whilst pursuing what he feels is his destiny : to become a drag queen. Growing up in an ex-mining village in County Durham, Jamie has already faced his fair share of difficulties after coming out as gay at 14. However, with the majority of his family and friends being supportive, Jamie has now decided that he is ready to share his passion with the world. He plans to embrace who he really is, by attending his end of school prom in drag, but he doesn't get the reaction he'd hoped for from both his school and, heart-breakingly, his own father. So Jamie has to make some difficult decisions. Jamie: Drag Queen at 16 follows his journey as he discovers more about the man he is becoming, and the reality of what this means for the rest of his life. He spends time with an established drag artist and bravely battles his demons, performing as his alter ego, Fifi La True, for the very first time in front of a large audience. As Jamie has some frank and intimate family moments, and finds out just how strong he really is, the film explores his hopes and fears for the future. Will he get the acceptance he craves from his peers and the confidence to be who he really is?
