An audience joined Mr Fiennes whose surname is known in many households through his actor brother Ralph and explorer Sir Ranulph, as he was interviewed by Farming Today presenter, Anna Hill.

He is paving the way with a revolutionary approach to land management, which has nurtured species diversity and risen crop yields across the Holkham National Nature Reserve and the wider estate.
