Why Beeb's Jo is outstanding in her field

By Eddie McIlwaine

Versatile television presenter Jo Scott is out there in the fields and meadows today, facing the cameras for another BBC Northern Ireland series of Home Ground, the rural affairs magazine.

In her time, Jo has been a newsreader and has presented Children In Need and is ready to turn her hand to any task.

You'll see what I mean about her popularity as a Home Front favourite when a date is fixed for its return to our screens next month.

Even the lambs - one of which she is cuddling in my picture today - adore her.

Filming is well under way by Below the Radar for what will be the second series. It also sees the return of co-presenter Gavin Andrews and reporter Ruth Sanderson.

"This time, Home Ground will be looking at subjects that help define our sense of place and our relationship with the land on which we live," explains Jo (44), who, in the first series, met a horse whisperer and witnessed the gruelling work of firemen in the Mournes.
