    Hogwood Farm vs. Vegans: Interview with Viva! Founder, Juliet Gellatley

    Hogwood Farm vs. Vegans: Interview with Viva! Founder, Juliet Gellatley

    In 2020, animal welfare charity Viva! launched 'Hogwood: A Modern Horror Story'. The documentary film is presented by Jerome Flynn and exposes the harrowing conditions on a Warwickshire pig farm. Their undercover footage ultimately forced big brand like Tesco to rethink their relationship with the company, but only after the animal-loving British public reacted to shocking scenes of abuse.

    Does the exposé highlight one 'bad apple' in the industry, or does it completely shatter the consumers' idyllic image of farming?

    In this interview, we meet Viva charity Founder and Director Juliet Gellatley and find out about the UK's factory farming industry.

    Warning: Contains descriptions of animal cruelty that some listeners may find disturbing.
