The New Squirearchy
One acre in every five of British farmland is bought by a City of Londonlnstitution. PensionFunds, Insurance Companies and Unit Trusts look like becoming the new squires.
The proportion of Britain's 27 million acres of farmland that is owned by Institutions is still small, but they are buying the best whenever it becomes available.
This month up-to-date land-ownership figures are being collected. In The Money Programme James Bellini looks at the new squirearchy and considers the effects upon farming, upon farmers and upon the City of London.

A series of eight contemporary documentaries. 6: The Cupboard from Crug-y-Bar
A valuable Georgian dresser changes hands for a song' in a lowly cattleshed in a Welsh hamlet. Four months and five owners later, restored beyond recognition, it is standing in the drawing-room of a fine house in a prosperous suburb in Massachusetts, its price up well over 600 per cent.
The cupboard was, in fact, a ' guinea pig', placed in the farm to enable us to film its progress up through the ' antique trade '.
