With the help of 3 volunteers who are devoted to their so called “Chelsea tractors” though one volunteer's monstrous motor looks like a chic tank) Sergeant carries out a series of admittedly unscientific experiments to try to persuade them to switch to more environmentally friendly, less cumbersome cars. Sergeant is probably preaching to a converted TV audience, but this doesn't seem to matter – it is still instructive to see the look of pained martyrdom and eventually horror, on some of the volunteers' faces as they are shown the consequences of their driving choices.[/FONT]

It's a totally different world to the one they're used to and yet they take it all in their stride, asking questions and making observations, but never criticising or judging. It's only when they visit an old people's home that they are stumped. They just can't understand why the elderly are not cared for by their families, and although they're much too polite to say anything, the expression of disbelief speaks volumes. They may be learning a lot from their stay, but we could learn a lot more from them.[/FONT]

Holly heads to Larry in West Virginia while Herbie is off to Barry on her North Yorkshire farm.

Hi Matt,

Thanks, sorry there isn't much on and I am sure they could have stretched the programme on Mull just a little bit from 10 minutes to 60.
