Who Run The World? Sheila Dillon

Play
Read more

This is the third episode of our Who Run The World? season celebrating women in food.

Today’s guest is multi-award winning food journalist Sheila Dillon, known as the voice of The Food Programme on BBC Radio 4. Sheila started her career in journalism when she reported on the contamination of the New York water supply by pesticides for food magazine Food Monitor, and has been reporting on the most important stories in the industry ever since. As a reporter, writer, producer and presenter on The Food Programme, Sheila has been involved in many important stories in the food world: from BSE to the horsemeat scandal; from the rise of GM crops to the growth of the organic movement; and more recently the health hazards of vegan junk food.

As well as telling us about these groundbreaking food stories, Sheila told us fascinating stories about her experiences as a woman in the food world, including her activities with the women's movement, how she was involved in a landmark sex discrimination case for equal pay in America, and more recently her experiences of the gender pay gap at the BBC. 

We really loved having Sheila share her knowledge, experience and advice for those looking to build a career in the industry. This is such a wonderful, insightful conversation and an important listen. 

Hope you enjoy!

This interview is part of our series Who Run The World? Women in Food. Our final episode will air on 8th March International Women’s Day.

My Food Hero: Sheila Dillon meets writer and campaigner Susan George

Play
Read more
In the second of a special series of food heroes, Sheila Dillon meets one of the most influential writers on international hunger and social justice in recent times.

Susan George published her first book 'How the Other Half Dies: The Real Reasons for World Hunger' almost 40 years ago. It was a book that, at the time, offered a radically different perspective on famine in the developing world.

In 1985, as pictures of East African drought and hunger started appearing on our TV screens, Susan George published 'Ill Fares The Land' a collection of essays which didn't shy away from criticising International aid efforts, and demanded a different approach to trade and development. She wrote 'A more just society is a better-fed society'. It would become a seminal text.

Now, aged 81, and continuing to speak at conferences around the world, Susan George speaks to Sheila Dillon about her career, the predictions she made 30 years ago, and the problems we still face in feeding our growing global population.

Presented by Sheila Dillon and produced in Bristol by Clare Salisbury.
