BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking: Wood and Trees: War and Remembrance

I recently joined Paul Gough and Gail Ritchie to discuss, with presenter Samira Ahmed, the meaning of trees and wood in war and peacetime for BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking.

Discussions ranged from Paul Nash’s paintings of blasted tree stumps in the first world war and the army’s amazing periscope trees, to today’s commemorative planting initiatives. James Taylor from the Imperial War Museum also shared some fascinating insights into the role of wood in the Great War.

The programme is broadcast today at 22:00 or you can catch up afterwards via the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking web page
