On Thursday 14th August, HHP featured in a Radio 4 programme, ‘Dream Homes’ as part of the series ‘Costing the Earth’. Costing the Earth tells stories which touch all our lives, looking at man’s effect on the environment. It questions accepted truths, challenges the people in charge and reports on progress towards improving the world we live in.
The details below are taken from the Radio 4 website programme summary.
In this week’s Costing the Earth Miriam O’Reilly meets the pioneers to hear their tales of stiff-upper lips in the face of adversity. She hears of the council planning departments who would much rather you went away and bought a Wimpey home. She uncovers the terrible truth about solar-powered showers- they’re fine if you don’t mind a cold shower for six months of the year- and there’s a visit to Hockerton where fish and children happily swim in the waters that flow out of their reed-bed sewage system.
