HRH The Duke of Edinburgh gives the 17th in this series of annual lectures:
Living off the Land
Prince Philip, for many years an active landowner as well as an outspoken conservationist, puts the present anxiety over food and farming methods into a global context.
Man has always exploited nature, but we cannot go on defying the laws of nature indefinitely. The effects of sustaining an ever increasing population are now causing the biggest of all external disturbances to the ecology of this globe.
The lecture is introduced by Marmaduke Hussey ,
Chairman of the BBC, and is given before an invited audience at the Brewery,
Chiswell Street, in the City of London.
