Market-place in Chile
Sheila Dillon finds out how climate change is affecting food production around the world, including Chile where farmer Juan Toro (right) grows tomatoes.
In the first of two programmes investigating the impact of climate change on food and wine, Sheila Dillon discovers how some food producers are tackling the problem of global warming.

Sheila visits the warm temperate Biome at the Eden Project in Cornwall where climatologist Pete Falloon of the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research describes how our temperatures will change in the future.

Reporter Andrew Jefford meets Mark Diacono at Otter Farm in Honiton, Devon, where he grows almonds, apricots and sharon fruit and is poised to plant his first olive grove.

Sheila visits Commonwork Farm near Sevenoaks in Kent where Jacqueline Leach, Director, of the Commonwork Trust and Mike Cottrell, farm director, outline their plans for a zero fossil fuel emissions farming system.

Reporter Nikita Gulhane meets agronomist Pepe Salazar at Lo Valledor fruit and vegetable market on the outskirts of Santiago, Chile. They talk to some local growers about the impact of a changing climate on their crops.

Sheila is joined in the studio by Professor Diana Liverman, Director of the Environmental Change Institute at Oxford University and chair of the Scientific Advisory Committee for the Global Environmental Change and Food Security Programme (GECAFS).

Sheila talks to Hugh Raven, member of the Sustainable Development Commission and Peter Melchett, policy director of the Soil Association
