Most of us took for granted the joy of sitting down for a meal in a restaurant surrounded by the buzz of conversation and eating something new and delicious prepared by someone else who also does the dishes. Food critic William Sitwell reflects on the long tradition of this culinary experience and its future in a Covid 19 world in his new book, The Restaurant: A History of Eating Out.

3:30 Voices from Antarctica 8: Under the ice part A

The annual sea ice in Antarctica is home to an upside-down garden that is the powerhouse behind Antarctic food webs. The microscopic plants that bloom on the underside of the ice in spring, as soon as the sun returns, are grazed on by young krill. Alison Ballance heads to Cape Evans to meet researchers studying this vital but little-known ecosystem under the ice.

Less than one percent of ambient light makes it through the sea ice but it is enough to trigger a bloom of ice algae in spring. Snow on the ice surface creates the darker patches.
