Sparks may fly when BBC Radio 4 brings hunting supporters and antis together for its Sunday morning programme, The Reunion on 4 September.

The show will reunite those involved on both sides of the hunting movement around the time of the Hyde Park Rally and the 1997 Labour government victory.

The Reunion, presented by Sue MacGregor describes itself as “a series that reunites a group of people intimately involved in a moment of modern history”.

In this episode it brings together Robin Hanbury-Tenison, then chief executive of the Countryside Alliance, hunting campaigner Darren Hughes, Lindsay Hill of the Union of Country Sports Workers, John Rolls of the RSPCA and the League Against Cruel Sports’ John Cooper.

  • The show goes out at 11.14am on 4 September and is repeated on Friday 9 September at 9am. It will also be available online through the BBC’s Listen Again service for a week after transmission.
