Emily Thomas, Ben Okri, Suzanna Crampton and Graham Harvey

University of Oxford: Mathematical Institute

How can we use storytelling to get across serious messages about food in a world that’s awash with misinformation and controversy about science, diet and the environment? That’s the challenge The Food Chain, the BBC World Service’s programme about the economics, science and culture of food, will present to its guests. Getting the story right is even more important in these uncertain times. Come and join presenter Emily Thomas and panelists Booker Prize-winning novelist Ben Okri, farmer Suzanna Crampton, and journalist and scriptwriter for The Archers Graham Harvey, as the programme is recorded, to enjoy a rich menu of discussion and debate.

Tickets are free but must be booked through the usual channels. Once the event is full, standby tickets will be available.
