Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall – British writer, broadcaster and campaigner – dreamt of escaping the bustling city stresses and downshifting to rural Dorset.

Following his year-long experiment to live off the fat of the land and the sweat of his brow provides fascinating insights as a city-slicker tries out country life.

Peppered with lots of humour and some great recipes, this seven-part series could well inspire you to do the same thing yourself.

If you already have made the move to the ‘simple’ life, you’ll be sure to relate to many of these experiences.

The follow-up series, Return to River Cottage is also available on DVD.
