Eating local on Planet Green starting Oct. 12
For those of you who have Glasgow EPB Digital cable, next month, the channel Planet Green (channel 103 on EPB system) is set to premiere the six-part series The 100 Mile Challenge, based on the 2006 bestselling book The 100-Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating.
The show is being billed as part reality series, part docu-soap, part social experiment. It follows the people of Mission, British Columbia, as they take on the challenge to eat food that was grown and produced within a 100 mile radius for 100 days. The book's authors, James MacKinnon and Alisa Smith, serve as guides to the experiment, providing behind-the-scenes access to the experiences of six families. Produced by Vancouver's Paperny Films, the show premieres on Planet Green on October 12.
This should be really good television!
