Keeping the barbarians at bay

by David Wilkinson | 01 September 2013
Category: General Biography
Kenneth Allsop was a writer, journalist and broadcaster who in the 1960s and early 90s became one of Britain's first television celebrities. This book focuses on the last few years of his short life, when he escaped London to live in a 17th-century watermill in the secret, crumpled landscape of West Dorset. The book describes how the threat of oil and gas exploration in this protected area of outstanding natural beauty forced him to become an environmental activist, and his grassroots campaigning led him to the BBC's first environmentalist TV series, Down to Earth, and to a radical 'green' column in the Sunday Times.
