I spotted this on the Radio 4 listings for Sunday morning https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00057p8

New British Hops
On Your Farm
Sarah Swadling meets the brewers showing faith in British hops.

Spring is the season for Hop Twiddling. Sarah Swadling finds out what it is, and how it’s done, at Hogs Back Brewery’s hop garden near Farnham. Surrey was once home to hundreds of acres of bines, but now there are only two growers left, including brewer Rupert Thompson. He tells Sarah why he wanted to use the most local hops possible including the Farnham White Bine, bought back from the edge of extinction.

Of course the Farnham White Bine isn't a new hop.
I'm a bloody awful pedant.
