I have recently graduated from university after studying Agribusiness Management. The problem I have with BBC’s Countryfile is the lack of current affairs. The issue I find particularly worrying is the lack of publicity over farming subsidies and the transparency over them. These issues are what myself and my fellow colleagues in the industry of my age fee countryfile lacks. The BBC is so pro EU over what it broadcasts on Countryfile. They never truly explain the extent of the agricultural subsidy system, and how many people exploit it. Uk farmers / landowners get almost 3 Billion pounds from the EU of taxpayers money, yet a significant number of people dont realise these subsidies only really benefit the rich.
