A Taste of Britain

on BBC Two England

' The best present you can give a young couple today is a tin opener ' - a characteristic remark from a disillusioned countryman. Yet 100 years ago English cooking was thought, even by some French-men. to be the finest in the world. Now Britain's regional foods are in danger of being packaged and processed out of existence. Severnside
This programme considers one region - Severnside. It examines the disappearance of Gloucestershire's succulent pork and strong cheese; and why it's the bottom of the barrel for scrumpy cider. Narrator DEREK JONES
Producer ANDREW SNELL (Manchester)
