In February, Laurence Llewelyn Bowen visited the Hockerton Housing Project to find out more about Eco homes and sustainable living. This was for a current series called Laurence Llewelyn Bowen’s History of Home , charting the changing relationship and attitudes towards our homes. The 9th out of 10 programmes, The Eco House , uses Hockerton Housing Project (HHP) as a case study. This will be broadcast on Thursday 3 April 2008 15:45-16:00 (Radio 4 FM).
Laurence interviewed both Nick White and Simon Tilley, both residents of HHP, to try and find out more about the emergence of eco housing, discover some of the misconceptions, and try to understand where it maybe leading to, for instance zero carbon homes. In Laurence’s typical flamboyant style, the interviews were very spontaneous, tangential and with distinct velvety undertones!
