The Forum Discussion Panel

The BBC World Service programme which boldly crosses boundaries: scientific, creative and geographic, presented by Bridget Kendall. Dorothy appeared with the American economist Marshall Goldman who assesses Russia's new status as an energy super power in his latest book Petrostate: Putin, Power, and the New Russia. Sociologist Frank Furedi argues we are too quick to blame global problems on humankind and should confront this new misanthropy'.

'The Forum sounded like eavesdropping on a very interesting dinner table in a restaurant, and it gave you all a chance to develop your thoughts and relate them to what other people were saying.' Sheila Christie.
