Laurie Taylor hosts a special edition of BBC Radio Four’s Thinking Allowed on the subject of Home.

What does the idea of home mean to us now? How are our needs changing and what will our future homes look like? Laurie and a panel of expert guests including RIBA President Angela Brady join an audience at the RIBA to discuss the meaning of Home.

Inspired by the Royal Institute of British Architects’ (RIBA) new exhibition on the history of the British home ‘A Place to Call Home: Where We Live and Why’. See the exhibition then join the discussion.

The programme will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4’s Thinking Allowed on 21 March 2012.
