Farming Today continues its summer trip around the UK, spotlighting devolved food and farming stories. This week the focus is on England - with the BBC's North East Environment Correspondent Paul Murphy sharing his thoughts on the past and present of English farming. Panorama is set to tackle the subject of Brexit's impact on the farming sector tonight - with the former boss of Sainsbury's, Justin King, warning that leaving the EU could mean higher food prices, lower quality and less choice. But others say more global trade will help cut the cost of our weekly food bill. Tonight's Panorama reporter Tom Heap chats to Anna Hill. There are a multitude of challenges facing honeybees today - but an event this weekend has been celebrating a new generation of young beekeepers who are promoting and protecting the species. The 2017 International Meeting of Young Beekeepers has been held in the UK for the first time; Sally Challoner went along. Presented by Sybil Ruscoe; produced by Lucy Taylor.
