Juliet Gardiner presents a special programme focusing on the British landscape, with theologian Martin Palmer, explorer Tristan Gooley, and Fiona Reynolds of the National Trust.
How should we appreciate the land around us? Tonight's Night Waves is devoted to a discussion on our changing relationship with the British landscape. Juliet Gardiner is joined by theologian and environmentalist Martin Palmer, writer and explorer Tristan Gooley, Fiona Reynolds Director General of the National Trust, and Radio 3 new Generation Thinker Alexandra Harris Together they look at our past and current relationship with landscape, the human need for the pastoral, and how our sense of ourselves is affected by the landscape around us. And, with the announcement of the government's new planning policy framework appreciating the value of ordinariness of the land around us, how should we view our landscape today and how can we best engage with it?
