TV Guide w/c 26th November 2012
24/11/2012 Leave a comment
This week’s TV Guide collated by @MrsDrSarah and hosted at the Science Teaching Library (her archive of TV Guides found here http://teachitbetter.wordpress.com/tag/tv-guide/) is now available.
Sarah’s Pick of the Week is the Nature’s Microworlds on Monterey Bay. The kelp forest of Monterey Bay, California is one of the most diverse marine ecosystems in the world. As a lapsed scuba diver, I will be watching this with interest; apparently the kelp forests in the North Sea are pretty amazing places to dive.
My Pick of the week is Naked Scientists on iPlayer. The BBC is decommissioning this radio show just as I’ve started listening to it. Show your support and give it a go, before it goes!
If you have any suggestions for next week, let me or @MrsDrSarah know on twitter using the hashtag #sciteachlib.
