    I saw it a couple of weeks ago, the presenter (Ellie ?) fell out of a kayak a mile or so before the Symmonds Yat rapids. It might be too old for iplayer.

    In this special edition of Countryfile, Ellie Harrison looks back at the best of wild Britain: its wild landscapes, its wild water and its wild life. It is another chance to follow Matt Baker as he witnesses one of the rarest sights in nature in the glens of Perthshire; to travel with Julia Bradbury along the wild river Wye to the birthplace of tourism; and to hit the icy heights with Katie Knapman as she braves the slopes on her first ever ice climb.
    Should be available later this evening.
    Here's the LINK
