Horse chestnut

yesterday evening (monday 21st), 10.45-11.00pm, on bbc radio 3 (repeated from may 2015)
horse chestnut (presented by professor fiona stafford) (1st of 5 episodes of the 3rd series of the meaning of trees) (in the the essay series)

“… Its conkers and majestic presence will always endear it to us and this was enough for Anne Frank, who also succumbed to its charms, writing about a horse chestnut tree in the centre of Amsterdam, thus also a symbol of hope, of escape and of one day, a return to normality.”
