Sir Ian Botham launches 'Outdoors Revival'

Catch up with cricket legend and champion charity walker Sir Ian Botham as he launches a major pubic vote aimed at sprucing up some much-loved National Trust properties.

Projects inlcude a glass-bottomed boat for Malham Tarn in Yorkshire, a new erosion-busting path at Barafundle Beach in Pembrokeshire, and a new trail around the River Exe in Devon.
