An incredible edible journey through the origins of our food. Our landscape, our climate and our history define what we grow and where we grow it. Journalist Giles Coren goes in search of the foods that make us who we are. From the cattle of North Wales that were once walked all the way to London, to sweet toothed Henry VIII's cherries, food is about much more than what we put on our plates.
How did big business take basic foodstuffs like water, cereal and yoghurt out of our cupboards, repackage them and sell them back to us at a massive profit? This is the tale of how the major brands got us hooked on bottled water, got us listening to their version of what is "healthy" and are telling us what we want to buy.
