BBC Northern Ireland's Home Ground will be broadcast live from Mount Stewart on the shores of Strangford Lough next month.

Presenters Jo Scott and Gavin Andrews, and reporter Ruth Sanderson, will be in the grounds of the National Trust property for three episodes.

It begins on Monday, May 6 on BBC One at 7pm, with further shows on May 8 and 10.

The Home Ground team will meet some of the people who tend to the Mount Stewart estate going throughout the year, taking cameras behind the scenes to find out what it takes to keep the estate running.

Series producer Michael Fanning said: "We're really thrilled to be able to bring Home Ground to the Mount Stewart estate for these special live programmes.

"Right across the week we'll be featuring a host of great stories from the estate and the wider Strangford Lough and Ards Peninsula area.

"Viewers can look forward to all the elements of Home Ground with the added excitement of live TV."
