Sheila Dillon finds out what happened to our small-scale bakeries, and meets the new breed of bakers leading the revival in old-fashioned baking.

Sheila travels to Ware in Hertfordshire to meet David Smith, CEO of The National Association of Master Bakers, to discuss the changing shape of the High Street bakery, and to visit the Association's archive.

Listener Claire Slattery visits The Bondgate Bakery in Otley to explain why she likes it so much she entered it for the 2004 Food and Farming Awards (it went on to win the award for Best Local Food Retailer).

Freddie Grisewood puts a question to panellist William Connor on Any Questions in 1961 about the taste and texture of the commercial loaf.

Sheila goes to the True Loaf Organic Bakery in Lincolnshire to meet Mervin Austin, one of the new breed of artisan bakers, who mills his own flour as well as baking his own bread.

She's joined in the studio by former craft baker Richard Ball who now trains bakers for Sainsbury's, and celebrity artisan baker Paul Hollywood to taste various loaves and discuss the future of bread retailing.

Artisan baker Dan Lepard takes reporter Margaret Collins to his favourite bakery, Ottolenghi in North London, where he explains why he finds it impossible to resist.
