Good radio

A couple of outstanding BBC Radio programmes – Lionel Kellaway’s really thought-provoking Nature on the ecological value of so-called ‘brownfield’ land and the risks to the well-being of City dwellers of building over it (click here to listen to the show). Providing the five million or more new homes we need over the next twenty years is going to be more complicated than we thought. Magdi Abdelhadi’s gorgeous half-hour about reciting the koran (don’t think you can listen to this one online, though. How frustrating and wasteful for such important programming to disappear as soon as it’s been broadcast).
