Tom Norrington Davies cooking fish
Bee Wilson and guests (including Tom Norrington-Davies right) celebrate frozen food.
Bee Wilson asks why the British consumer is disdainful of frozen food, and meets some of those who are bringing it in from the cold.

Bee Wilson visits Paul Levy at his farmhouse near Oxford to find out how having a freezer changed his life.

Bee talks to Professor Elizabeth Shove, professor of sociology at Lancaster University to discuss the complex relationship between freezer and owner.

Bee meets Steve James, director of The Food Refrigeration and Process Engineering Research Centre and senior research project manager Judith Evans at their department in Langford, near Bristol.

Sheila Dillon and chef and broadcaster, Roopa Gulati, meet Dale Penfold from frozen food company Cook, a runner up in last year's BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards.

Bee is joined in the studio by chef and food writer Tom Norrington-Davies and Alistair Blair of The Fish Society who compare fresh and frozen halibut.
