Brick Lane

Brick Lane 2

Brick Lane in London's East End has been the home to an ever-changing community over the last five or six decades.

The future of food - No.1

Vivian Moses

We who live in Britain and buy our food here (only 60% of which is grown in the country, with the rest imported) cannot help but be interested in the current state of UK food production and its future prospects.

Are there dark threats on the horizon or glowing prospects? Might climate change have unpleasant consequences or will we benefit? Will champagne production really move from France to England as some have suggested?
Phil Bicknell 

To respond to these and related issues, Phil Bicknell, Head of Food & Farming at the National Farmers Union, fields questions from biotechnologist Vivian Moses representing the inquiring British layman. Most of us live in towns and cities with probably a rather hazy notion of the realities of farming and the origins of our food. This is a good chance to learn a bit more.
