(Good life?)

I would like to find a series where to young scientists/doctors move to a farm in Wales and use it late 70/80?. It has been on one of the new free view channels and it is a bit dated. I think it was called down on the farm can not find it. I may have the name wrong.

It has a good piece on copper wire bands on raised beds that must be seen.
