Episode 190 of 431 episodes

Everything has a price. But what about the value of the natural environment? Can you attach a monetary value on landscape, biodiversity or clean air? Some say we should value nature in a market sense, as we do for most other things. A very passionate panel of experts looks at what kind of price tag we can put on our planet. They touch on seed democracy, urbanisation, land management ... and why we have to kill all the bees.
