Lambing Live is a farming programme which was broadcast live on BBC Two in five parts, beginning on Sunday 7 March 2010. Presented by Kate Humble and Adam Henson, the show was mainly filmed live on the Beavan family farm, near Abergavenny in Monmouthshire[1] and followed a week in the life of the farm, concentrating on the births of the new lambs. Filmed inserts showed the lead-up to the lambing season, including the purchase of two new stud sheep (tups). The show was produced in a style similar to Springwatch.

The second series following a farming family from Cumbria began on 4 April 2011, again presented by Kate Humble.[2] A third series began airing from 24 March 2014.[3][4] This series concentrates on the Dykes family who have been farming close to the Pentland Hills since the 1950s. They breed primarily sheep but also some cattle.
