A Weblog monitoring coverage of environmental issues and science in the UK media. By Professor Emeritus Philip Stott. The aim is to assess whether a subject is being fairly covered by press, radio, and television. Above all, the Weblog will focus on science, but not just on poor science. It will also bring to public notice good science that is being ignored because it may be politically inconvenient.

Aggregate comment .....

The new all action Series of the critical environmental programme, 'Home Planet', continued again on BBC Radio 4 yesterday (apologies for delay - have been gardening).

This fourth week's topics included, inter alia, nano- and pico-plankton, crabbing, aggregate dredging (all sorts of scrapes), and marram grass'. As ever, fun! Don't miss Stotty enthusing about marram!

If you are in the UK, the programme is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 every Tuesday afternoon at 15.02 BST, directly after the news summary; if you are outside the UK, you may still listen to it, online, via the BBC 'Home Planet' Web Page:

(a) on the day in question at 15.02 BST, choose the 'Listen Live' button; or, (b) for one week after the first broadcast, choose the 'Listen Again' button; or, (c) after one whole week, select the relevant date under 'Previous Programmes'.

Philip, off to the garden to admire (his wife's) work! "Over there a little bit, dear.....!"
