#15: When the Wind Blows, Beck and shabby chic

By The New Statesman

Tom Gatti and Kate Mossman revisit Raymond Briggs' 1986 animated feature When the Wind Blows and discuss Beck's latest album Colors. Then they celebrate a noniversary sent in by a listener: it's 38 years since the "shabby chic" interior design trend was born.
