Fast Food: A Love Story

London has a love-hate relationship with fast food. Public health campaigns and celebrity chefs vilify it and warn it could kill us; yet, as this film shows, we’ve never had it so good. This programme reveals, with an emphasis on our lunches, how food and eating have evolved since the 1950s. Special emphasis is placed on the importance of supermarkets, as Rob Lyons, author of Panic on a Plate, tells us, supermarkets have enabled more people to be fed more inexpensively, conveniently and well.
