This was a phenomenal programme. So much that I didn't know about. But how sadly high tech and scientific everything is now.

Well, I found it slow, they repeated themselves over and over again. Basically half an hours program stretched into an hour.

Content was interesting, but presented in a dumbed down, dull way.

I missed the programme. Did anyone comment on the flavour of a tomato that comes from a plant that grows a foot a day? I mean, it must be mostly water.

hi Berghill - I guess that programme makers have to appeal to the widest poss audience so bound to be dumbed down to a certain extent but I get what you mean. Yes, it is very scientific now isnt it Heather M? I suppose that's the only way that food can be produced at such an intense level - my inner jury is still out on whether it's a good thing or bad but I tend to veer to the organic side! (especially after a tipple of home made wine....)
