In the episode, the pair will visit Cogges Manor Farm in West Oxfordshire; focusing on the changing role of women in farming and how machinery has altered.

Farm manager, Kirsty Grey said: “We still keep some animals at Cogges to preserve the farming tradition and bring life to the farm buildings.

“Many of our animals are breeds traditional to Oxfordshire and help to tell the stories of Cogges through the ages, and give an idea of some of the small scale farming that still takes place in the county and Cotswolds.”

The episode will air at 7pm on Sunday on BBC One.
