In the first episode of a new series, Ruth visits Wyresdale Park in Lancashire, home to the Whewell family.

The Hall belongs to James Whewell senior and his wife Sally, who have spent decades restoring the estate back to its former glory.

Next in line is their son, Jim, who currently lives in London and runs a successful arts and music festival.

At some point, his parents would like him to take over the estate, but for that to succeed they need to turn it from a money pit into a viable business.

The only trouble is, James junior and senior don't see eye to eye: the father is a traditionalist, the son a reformer.

Can Ruth Watson help bring this family together and reverse their fortunes?
