Jules is at the Royal Welsh winter show, where the top farm animals in Wales are strutting their stuff. But this is more than just a beauty parade, as Jules finds out how the winners and losers in the show ring are dictated by changing tastes.

Margherita finds out what wellies are best for which activity, be it a winter walk or making a splash at festivals. Jules meets his sailing hero, Ben Ainslie.

Jules also finds out how plastic can be recycled and picks up a few tips on how changing shopping habits could help.

Jules is in Milton Keynes finding out how dogs are being trained to detect cancer. With a sniffing prowess than can detect a teaspoon of sugar in somewhere the size of two Olympic swimming pools, these detectives on four legs are helping to push the boundaries of medical science.
