Julia Bradbury is one of television's most experienced and versatile presenters. She currently co-hosts the BBC1 country affairs programme Countryfile with Matt Baker. They travel to the most interesting places in the country uncovering stories, meeting people and investigating issues that affect us all. It launched to record ratings and is consistently the 'most watched programme' on BBC One. Countryfile is broadcast every Sunday at 7pm. For two weeks during the summer of 2009 Julia and fellow Countryfile presenter Matt Baker were amongst 12 celebrities racing against time to raise money for Children In Need. Around the World in 80 Days offered a visually stunning circumnavigation of Planet Earth, re-enacting the epic odysseys of Phileas Fogg and Michael Palin for a 21st Century audience. Julia personally raised over £14,000.00 Following the enormous success of Wainwright's Walks and Railway Walks, Julia is in the middle of filming three more visually stunning series, set in Germany, Africa and another UK location yet to be announced. Julia is continuing her "cutting edge" series of Kill It, Cook It, Eat It for BBC Three. In her last series, Julia explored the process of getting wild game from field to fork. Nine contributors went on a journey to find out, first hand, what was involved in the shooting, butchering and preparing of wild game for their table. The controversial food programme, which has just been transmitted on BBC3 examined the nation's relationship with meat 'from farm to fork'. A well known face on our screens, Julia's back catalogue has included the consumer affairs programme Watchdog, travel series for Rough Guide and Wish You Were Here. Prior to that she was the Los Angeles Correspondent for GMTV, and hosted EXCLUSIVE!, one of the launch programmes for Five. Gareth McLean of the Guardian wrote "she is one of the best presenters on British television. Julia Bradbury manages to be authoritative and warm, funny but not fluffy. She is capable and charming but also knows some right dirty jokes and could probably drink you under the table".
