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.

It's time to visit the 'Home Planet' again.....

The new Series of the critical environmental programme, 'Home Planet', continues today on BBC Radio 4. The Series runs for 11 more Tuesdays.

If you are in the UK, the programme is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 every Tuesday afternoon at 15.02 GMT, directly after the news summary; if you are outside the UK, you may 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'.

This week's topics include: 'sunbathing' blackbirds; night-calling redwing; the Carlisle floods; low-head hydropower systems; that giant of European engineering, the Airbus 380-800; and the seamy side of life with coal tar. Not to be missed.

Philip, always happy to mine such interesting seams. Coffee - I am very slow this morning.
