A Point of View - Will Self: The British Vomitorium

'Are you full yet? Stuffed? Fit to burst?' asks Will Self, as he appeals to the post-Christmas glutton to consider a major lifestyle change in the year ahead.

"Are you full yet? Stuffed? Fit to burst?" asks Will Self as he appeals to the post-Christmas glutton to consider a major lifestyle change in the year ahead. "What I think we should all do", he says, "is throw up our very obsession with food itself, and enter the New Year purged". He takes us on a tour of foodie history, and explores how we've gone from being a culinary backwater to "the most food-obsessed nation in Europe - if not the world". Producer: Adele Armstrong.
