Discovery owned Quest has commissioned Born Mucky, a new show “that captures the reality of life for modern day farmers in rural Britain, and the resilience and commitment required to keep farms thriving.”
Produced by multi BAFTA award winning media company CTVC, Born Mucky follows the lives of three farmers and their families as they work to protect their land, livestock and legacy across the seasons.
From building dry stone walls to raising cattle, the multi-narrative episodes show the complexities of farming and celebrate the craft and skills passed down through generations.
Airing in 2020, the featured farms include Treflach Farm in Shropshire, Wye Farm in Herefordshire, and Village Farm in Peterborough.
Simon Downing, SVP, Head of Factual and Sport, Discovery UK said: “Our audiences love programmes that celebrate British industry, culture and craftsmanship.
“Born Mucky shines a light on an oft-overlooked part of British life, and the people who worked tirelessly to make a living off the land. We couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Born Mucky to Quest; and deliver our audiences more inspiring British content.”
CTVC CEO Caroline Matthews added: “Britain’s bucolic countryside is a source of national pride and fascination, but behind the hedgerows farm life is filled with constant challenges, hope and hard work.
“With men, machines and plenty of mud, we are thrilled to be bringing agricultural programming to Discovery’s Quest.”
