Probing the historical evidence from the book "A River with a City Problem"

This Thursday 31 October you have a chance to hear from Dr Margaret Cook as she explains how she brought together the historical trends for her recently released book.

This story covers:
1. Encountering the Floodplain
2. Mighty outbreak of Nature's Forces: the 1893 Floods
3. Taming the River
4. Encroaching on the Floodplain
5. The River Prevails: The 1974 Flood
6. Dam Dependency

A rich journey over time and a great way to better understand where the future might lead us and what we need to do in advance.
In addition a panel and question session with fellow author and ex journalist David Fagan will open up the debate with your queries on what do these historical trends mean for our future and what can you do in your professional role?
