Notes on a Dirty Island

Current Affairs / Bill Bryson
ABOUT

Best-selling travel writer and president of the Campaign to Protect Rural England Bill Bryson presents a personal and passionate account of how Britain has become a rubbish tip.

When he first came to England in 1972, Bryson believed that he had found the most cared for country in the world, but his optimism has turned to horror and he castigates the nation’s apparent inability to walk or drive anywhere without leaving a trail of litter.
