The sheep industry is to be thrust into the media spotlight with a primetime TV show about the lambing season.



BBC Two will be broadcasting live from a 900-ewe farm in South Wales for five nights from March 7 – capturing events as they unfold.

The series will be presented by Kate Humble and programme makers say she will be getting her hands dirty helping to make sure as many lambs as possible survive those first crucial days after birth.

She will be joined at the farm run by the Beavan farmily by Countryfile presenter and farmer Adam Henson.

Alongside the day-to-day action on the farm, Lambing Live will delve deeper into the secret life of sheep.
