Has our response to the floods brought out the best of British or the worst? We debate that, as well as meeting a homeowner coping with the mental strain of the floods, and we delve into the weather records back to 1760. Two brothers tell us about sibling rivalry and we head to Israel where a kibbutz is making its name in the luxury food market. On the paper review are Robert James-Collier, Dr Phil Hammond and Sue MacGregor.
