`People say "Like father, like son", and the story of my life has mirrored my father's to a quite uncanny degree. Right from when I was a little boy, he was my rock; my mentor; my hero. It is no exaggeration to say that he taught me virtually everything I know about both country life and television. Without him, I certainly would not be doing what I am today ...' Like Farmer, Like Son is a truly remarkable account of Adam's life that explores a hidden family history and the unbreakable bond between Adam and his life-long hero: his father Joe. In the 1940s and `50s, Joe, the son of stage and film star Leslie Henson, chose a completely different path, alien to his thespian parents and decided to pursue a career as a farmer. In addition, Joe overcame a serious stammer to become a regular broadcaster on Country Matters and also became the saviour of Britain's rare breeds. He even put his business and his reputation at stake to open the world's first Farm Park. Here, for the first time, Adam reveals the family traits, childhood experiences and farming wisdom which have made him the man he is today. As he trawls the family archive and discovers his own bloodline, Adam learns to understand and appreciate the famous grandfather he never knew and pays tribute to the wonderful father he has so recently lost.
