Kill It Cook It Eat It

FOOD TELEVISION – Saturdays from 16 January, 8.30pm

Julia Bradbury hosts this new series which follows the journey of baby farm animals from the pasture to the plate. The slaughter of young animals – veal, milk-fed lambs, kid goats and suckling pigs – happens regularly in abattoirs around the country throughout the year. In a specially constructed restaurant cum studio built around a working abattoir, guests from vegetarians to meat lovers are invited to watch as the animals are brought in for killing by professional slaughter men. The animals are then cooked and the studio audience must decide whether to eat the freshly prepared meat and are requested to offer their views on and attitudes towards the process.
