Following on from 2007's River Cottage collection comprising Escape to River Cottage, Return to River Cottage and River Cottage Forever, in which Hugh chronicles his trials and tribulations at the original Dorset site, this collection of 7 series picks up the story of his life on a new site. They comprise:

River Cottage: Spring, River Cottage: Autumn, Gone Fishing, Road Trip, A cook on the Wild Side, Beyond River Cottage and The River Cottage Treatment.

Beyond RC chronicles the move from Dorset to Devon. The RC Treatment details Hugh's attempts to convert lovers of junk food into fans of real food. Gone Fishing devotes itself to the fishing world and starts to up the campaigning nature of the franchise as it considers how a sustainable fishing industry could operate. Spring and Autumn looks at both seasonal recipes while also covering the lives of inexperienced gardeners as they attempt to grow on their first plot of land. A Cook on the Wild Side seeks to make recipes only from produce found in the wild, and Road Trip's title sums up that one.

After the original adventures, in which watching someone going self-sufficient felt as if it were a genuine venture into the unknown, the later ones are more stage-managed and less assured. They lack focus and direction with it being unsure if they're trying to be cookery programs, campaigning food programs, reality tv featuring odd foodie people, or programs detailing the triumphs and disasters of Hugh's business ventures. But that mixture of styles often works well as there's always something for everyone, and the breadth of subject matters gives the franchise its charm.

Beyond is perhaps the most entertaining, being the series that is most like the first three series.

This is my first review, but I found all the DVD's in this collection delightfully entertaining and informative, I brought it as a present for my partner but it stays with me now. Its a brilliant buy even if you've perviously seen them all on T.V there's bits in here that they edit out.
Thank you.

Considering the number of DVDs squeezed into this pack, its great value for money and makes a fantastic gift for the River Cottage fan. I got it for my Mum for Xmas and she was delighted - it was hard to keep her from watching them all at once! A great variety from the River Cottage Treatment to the Autumn and Spring series, Hugh F-W and his enthusiastic, sincere approach to self sufficiency is always a pleasure.

A most entertaining set of DVD's with plenty of useful advice though at times to say the least unusual. Well worth getting for your library. Hugh is easy to watch and is encouraging for all who live a self sufficient lifestyle away from the rat race or desire too. I loved the fishing and diving and could almost taste the fresh culinary delights he prepared in the most trying circumstances and I was much intrigued by the lady who seems to live on seaweed varieties. I was amazed at the huge variety of forest fungi that can be eaten and much inspired by the various roadside plants that are readily available for adding taste and spice to foods. There is so much more could be said but let me just suggest you treat yourself to a set of the series. I highly recommend it.
