Just finished a two-part programme for BBC Radio 4. It’s called The Slow Coach, and in it I try to help three people apply the principles of Slow in their own lives. More details down below.
It airs on 12th and 19th August 2013 at 11am, BBC Radio 4.

Here’s the blurb from Loftus, the production company:
Liz Barclay follows three busy people on a bold experiment to slow down their pace of life. Their ‘slow coach’ is Carl Honoré, once a speedy journalist, now spokesperson for a global ‘Slow Movement’. He argues that our increasing obsession with speed means we race through life instead of actually living it – by finding a better balance between fast and slow, we’ll increase our wellbeing, creativity and productivity. It’s a compelling theory, but does it work?
Three volunteers have agreed to put Carl’s theories to the test by following his advice over the course of one month – working mum Lizzie, business owner Steve and volunteer Scott. We follow their successes and struggles.
