Yearlstone on BBC1's "The Great British Summer", filmed summer 2006

Yearlstone's preparations for the 2006 grape harvest were featured on November 26th 2006 on prime time BBC1 television (8pm), in the final episode of the Great British Summer presented by the indefatigable Alan Titchmarsh. Over 10 minutes of the hour long programme were dedicated to Yearlstone!

Viewers were treated to a fine display of Juliet and Roger obsessively worrying about sugar content in their grapes, performing the essential hundred-berry test, and deciding exactly when to start picking - and who's available at very short notice. Plus the mystery of what's eating the grapes - badgers with a drink problem!
