The author reflects on the significance of the television series The River Cottage Treatment to the agriculture sector in Great Britain. According to the author, the vast array of food programmes has undoubtedly broadened people's tastes and provided an insight into how food is grown. He states that the next challenge is to convince the programme makers to serialize some real farming so more of the public see the real work and dedication that goes on to produce the nation's food.
