Does paradise wait just outside your front door?

"Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains" by Albert Bierstadt, 1868

Simon Barnes is one of Britain's most renowned sports and environmental journalists. During a career that has spanned more than 30 years he has seen some of the most pristine and untouched parts of the globe. Barnes' time spent admiring and writing about the natural world has led to the publication of his latest book, The Sacred Combe

An exploration of mankind's relationship with nature, this book examines our place in the world and our environment's role in shaping and forming our happiness and well being. Join Susan Cahill as she talks with Simon about his own deep connection with nature, where it came from, and what the wild world can give to us.
