Flood plain building - plainly foolish?

Two million properties in England and Wales are already at risk of flooding, yet we continue to build on flood plains. Rising sea levels will put more homes at risk. In London alone a major flood could cause £12 billion worth of damage, yet 120 000 new homes will be built in the Thames Gateway by 2016. So is flooding inevitable? Should our homes be built to withstand wet feet? And what should be done with the water - do we wall it out, or let it in? And will keeping London dry put other cities under water? Audiences can join a panel of experts to find out more.
