Members of the Real Bread Campaign will appear on a new BBC2 series tonight highlighting the importance of Community Supported Bakeries (CSB).

Duncan Glendinning and Patrick Ryan, artisan bakers from The Thoughtful Bread Company, will appear in The Big Bread Experiment. The programme, airing tonight (5 December) for three consecutive nights at 7pm, will show the bakers’ year-long journey to help set up Bread...Actually, a CSB in Bedale, North Yorkshire.

Chris Young of the Real Bread Campaign, said: “Since it began in 2008, the Real Bread Campaign has been encouraging and supporting CSBs, so it’s great that BBC2 is now helping to share this great idea with Britain. Hopefully these Campaign members’ stories will inspire even more people to get baking Real Bread for their local communities.”
Carol Brown of Bread…Actually, said: “We hope it will help people to understand where we came from and what we believe in: the beauty of simple, locally produced bread, and the unifying power of baking it together.”

The series also shows fellow Real Bread Campaign members working to restore Crakehall Watermill so that they can use its stoneground flour.
