Future of Food BBC2 Mon 24th Aug 9pm

Should be useful, looks like it cover a few geographical topics with the theme of a global food crisis.

From the BBC website:

George Alagiah travels the world to reveal a growing global food crisis that could affect the planet in the years ahead. With food riots on three continents recently, and unprededented competition for food due to population growth and changing diets, the series alerts viewers to a looming problem and looks for solutions.

3 part series.

I missed it, have just watched it on iPlayer.
Does anyone know if it is going to be repeated?
Or has anyone recorded it?
It will be really useful for the WJEC A2 Sustainability topic for this year.
Would really appreciate it if someone could help.


Thanks

I second that, Mez! Really good programme - would be good for quality of life v standard of living in new WJEC B GCSE Spec. Thinking particularly of the Cuba bit.

Anyone recorded it??

Just a reminder that the second part of this series is on tonight. It covers a lot of geographical issues within the theme of a global food crisis.

Yes - I did record the first part!

Part two was really well done, although I didnt record it. (Is there a protocol for requesting / copying video & DVD recordings by Forum members?) The programme lends itself to use of  5-10 minute case-studies. Has anyone itemised the content of either of these first two programmes? That would be really useful!
