About Supermarket Symphony

Supermarket Symphony is a composed feature - produced by me (Nina Perry) On this project I am being superbly assisted by Geoff McQueen, Josef Hare-Brown and Hilary Robinson. It is a Falling Tree Production for BBC Radio 4.

Love them or hate them, supermarkets are social hives, in part, driven by us and our shopping habits. As we desert the high streets in favour of supermarkets, are we merely opting for convenience or the cheapest price? Or falling prey to marketing ploys? Or is there something more to this attraction? Do supermarkets fulfil a deeper social or personal need?
