BBC Radio 3’s art and ideas programme explores Rachel Carson’s passionate book Silent Spring, first published in 1962 and argued to be the work which launched the environmental movement. But how does it speak to us now? For a recording of Free Thinking’s Cultural Landmark series presenter Rana Mitter is joined by guests Tony Juniper, Emily Shuckburgh, Dieter Helm and Kapka Kassabova.
Free Thinking is broadcast on Radio 3 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10pm. This recording will be broadcast on Wednesday 29 May and available as a BBC Arts & Ideas podcast.
