The radio documentary ‘AgriCultured: Five Oxfordshire Farmers’ consists of exerts from five of the ten farmers who have been interviewed. The five farmers featured were interviewed in May/ June 2002, after the end of the foot and mouth outbreak of 2001/2002. All interviews were conducted in the farmer’s homes, usually over their kitchen or dinning room table.
Exerts chosen for this radio programme show particular socio-economic or cultural trends as experienced by the farmers interviewed. In a sense then, this is the people’s history.
We recommend that you read the accompanying briefing document, below, during or after listening to the radio programme.
