Shumacher's Big Society

I recently got involved with a programme for the Radio 4 Archive, on Fritz Schumacher. It assesses the legacy of E.F Schumacher and on David Cameron's ideas of The Big Society.

E.F Schumacher was once decscribed as "one of the few original thinkers of the 20th Century" and was author of the seminal book published in 1973, 'Small is Beautiful - Economics as if the people mattered'

The programme was produced by Chris Eldon Lee and was a Culture Wise production for BBC Radio 4,  broadcast on 25th June 2011. Listen again via the BBC.

Shared Planet

Brilliantly, Monty Don persuaded the BBC to let him make 24 30 minute programmes about population and our relationship with the natural world. My task? To explain what "sustainable yield" means - and why population is still a massively important part of the sustainability debate. Listen again via the BBC.
