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.

Time to shuttle off to that 'Home Planet' again.....

Our 11th Series of the critical environment programme, 'Home Planet', begins today on BBC Radio 4 at 15.02 pm BST. The Series then runs for 12 more Tuesdays into October, and, as with the last Series, it will include some Gardeners' Question Time-type 'out-and-about' slots (the first in Swansea). These are great fun, and most rewarding.

If you are in the UK, the programme is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 every Tuesday afternoon at 15.02 BST, directly after the brief 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 first week's topics include: the Government's recent energy review; "What's wrong with our horse chestnuts?"; salt water toilet flushes; the voracious Nile perch and Lake Victoria; and, differential harvest times on light soils. As ever, a fascinating pot pourri - I do hope you can drop by for a listen.

Philip, glad to be back wittering away with his great colleagues. Coffee to clear the mind.
