Filmmaker Steve Barron has directed some of the most iconic music videos of the 1980s including Michael Jackson's Billie Jean (which we discuss in the podcast), Aha's Take on Me, Human League Don't You Want Me Baby, and The Jam's Going Underground (to name but a few).
Steve's also been a pretty successful film and TV director as well, and yet, it's his latest project - constructing a house from the hemp he's grown on his own farm - that he views as his greatest achievement.
Steve has been collaborating since the project's early stages with Cambridge University, and together they've come up with some pretty cool innovations on creating construction materials from hemp.
Steve hopes that Margent Farm will just be the beginning and the hemp-based technology they've created can eventually be scaled up and be used worldwide as a more sustainable source of building materials.
