Radio 4 - A Culture Encounter

Recommended Posts

This was on yesterday. Link to the listen again is here https://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl7j/2017/11/14

9am was the scheduled time.

I heard part of it stuck in traffic, but various phone calls interrupted my listening. What I did hear was some woman really kicking off about the whole theft of wealth related to assets put out of reach from the younger generations, the usual stuff that faces the facts of the social train crash we're encountering.

Did anyone hear it? Any good?

Can't listen to I-player - blockers in the office.

What it does say about the program:


We may be more connected than ever, but we are, in many ways, strangers to each other. How many of your close friends have radically different politics, values or life experiences from you? And when did you last share a meal with someone from a totally different background?

In this programme, Douglas Alexander tries to find out why we've become so polarised as a nation and what we can do about it. His time as a politician convinced him that government alone cannot mend Britain's divisions. So what can we do as a society and as individuals?

Douglas seeks advice from those who've studied Britain's fault lines and traced their causes - from political and economic forces to neuroscience and psychology. We also hear from those with expertise in bringing together people from different backgrounds - from the head of the UK army to the members of an Edinburgh cooking club. He also takes inspiration from the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, who's argued that, for human beings to flourish, we need to create a Culture of Encounter.
