Brilliant 'Start the Week' programme Monday 1 May
30 April 2017
On Radio 4's 'Start the Week' programme on Monday Andrew Marr discussed environmentalism and economics with three wonderfully interesting, intelligent and articulate people - writer and farmer Wendell Berry (from his farm in Kentucky), 'recovering environmentalist' Paul Kingsnorth and 'doughnut' economist Kate Raworth.
It was a coherent and fascinating discussion, and thoroughly worthwhile listening for anyone involved in any aspect of environmentalism or concerned at the mindless pressure towards economic growth.
You can hear a repeat of the programme on the BBC i-player at
