The programmes range from looking at the history of knitting from the American revolution to modern Geurrilla knitters with Jane Garvey to telling the intimate story of life during the Libyan war through the eyes of people who battled their own fears to step out of Gaddafi’s dark shadow, to featuring Kaffe Fassett on Desert Island Disks, even looking into wool farming and finally a very interesting discussion with David Gauntlett, author of Making is Connecting to discuss making things, creating communities and what counts as craftsmanship.

There is something for everyone.
