A two-part investigation into the origins of the organic movement, written by historian
Philip Conford and presented by Simon Parkes.
The organic movement can be traced back over 100 years when concerns were first raised about the dangers of using newly-discovered artificial chemical fertilisers. Later in the twenties and thirties when British farming fell into decay, the health of Britons sharply declined and organic farming was seen as a way of revitalising both the population and the countryside. Then for many years the organic movement made little impact until the environmental movement took off in the sixties. Now after the BSE crisis, organic food is in virtually every supermarket.
