Jenny Uglow's Nature's Engraver
Wednesday 4 October 2006 21:40-22:15 (Radio 3)
Jenny Uglow talks to Isabel Hilton about her new book Nature's Engraver; a biography of Thomas Bewick, who wrote and illustrated Bewick's History of British Birds. It was the first 'field guide' for ordinary people and the book that significantly shaped the way we view the natural world.
