Sunday night's episode of Countryfile has provoked political upset from a portion of viewers who accused it of having an "anti-Brexit" tone.
The BBC1 programme aired a section exploring the consequences of Brexit on seasonal migrant farm workers and those who employ them, which was branded as "leftie propaganda" by irate viewers on Twitter.
Presenter Tom Heap - who was also criticised online and perceived by one social media user as a "doom merchant" - had been speaking with a soft fruit grower about the limitation of seasonal migrant workers which could have a negative impact on his business.
"This isn't anything to do with migration or immigration. This is just seasonal workers coming over here, working hard, benefiting our economy and then going home," the farmer Anthony Snell explained to Heap.
"There's absolutely no doubt we would be in serious trouble if we didn't have our seasonal workers coming here. We would be out of business. It would be absolutely catastrophic to our industry."
He also said that while he would "love" to employ British workers, there just weren't enough who were willing to pick soft fruit for a living.
This prompted the following backlash on Twitter:
However, some viewers disagreed that it was anti-Brexit, and defended the segment against claims of bias reporting.
Meanwhile, Heap saw the funny side when a newspaper reporting on the reaction of the show had confused him with another Countryfile presenter farmer Adam Henson.
"Oh this is the best! Laugh, cry, let Adam call his lawyer. Priceless," he tweeted.
