    A few years ago, according to a review of "Taylor's Guide to Heirloom Vegetables," thousands of old- fashioned varieties of vegetables were on the verge of going extinct, run over by the stampede among commercial farmers toward high-yield hybrid varieties.

    The risk of extinction remains very real for many old varieties, but a vigorous grassroots movement championing the virtues of the open-pollinated heirlooms is working hard to reverse the tide.

    Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we explore the hidden life of heirloom tomatoes.
