Rose George
The Story of Blood

In Nine Pints, Rose George tells the story of the fluid that travels around our body and sustains our lives: blood. Her research takes her to Wales, and the only leech farm in Britain, to Nepal, where she speaks to a group of girls about the taboo of menstruation, to a Canadian plasma clinic and to a medical team in London who are revolutionising the treatment of trauma.

In conversation with Alex Clark, journalist, critic, broadcaster and Festival Artistic Director.
