South of the River presenter Alli Harding gets the lowdown on bees and swarms. Listen to the podcast.


Brighton East apiarist and sustainability educator Helen Charles joined Alli Harding in the studio yesterday to talk all things bees. Helen was accompanied by her partner, country music singer Benny Allen, who played a track from his new children’s album (pictured above).

Later in the show, Alli interviewed Edithvale physiotherapist Gill Smith, who is an expert in pelvic floor health, to chat about an issue that can sometimes be awkward for women to discuss.

Alli also gave some tips about how to avoid swooping magpies and played some great tracks from Joan Armatrading, John Lennon, Paul Simon, Deborah Conway, and Paul Kelly.
