RadioTimes: 1/8 Documentary series in which tree surgeon Jon Hammerton and Kew's arboretum manager Tony Kirkham examine how trees have always been at the heart of Britain's political, artistic and economic life - building the weapons of war, the altars of sacrifice and the instruments of peace, and fuelling the industrial revolution. Here, they explore the yew, discovering why it is associated with churchyards, and find out how the tree was responsible for one of the biggest power shifts in British history.
