A TV and Radio Guide break…

Philae Lander - sleep

Philae is resting: The Rosetta lander


Dear teachers and students who use the science TV and Radio guide,

Sarah and I have been discussing the absence of the guide for the last few weeks and have come to a decision. We are both too busy to collate and produce the weekly guide at the moment. The autumn term has taken its toll on us both and we keep having to put off the labour of love that you all enjoy using. This leads to weekly disappointment for you and guilt and frustration for us.

So a decision… we’re going to stop producing the guide until the New Year. This will give us time to get all the other things like family life and work commitments in order. I will also endeavour to spend the time making the process more “helper friendly” so that the people who have kindly offered help in the past can support us next year.

Please continue to follow the @ScienceTVRadio twitter account as we will tweet and RT programmes that we think will interest you in the meantime.

Best wishes and a happy December and Christmas.

We’ll see you in the New Year.


(No) TV and Radio Guide w/c 10 November 2014

It’s been a hectic start back to school after 1/2 term holiday and I’m struggling to balance all the things in I need to do for school with family life.

Please pass on my apologies to your students but there is no TV and Radio Guide this week.

I’ll include some highlights from the week to pique your interest:

  • Sunday’s Sky at Night is a special edition focusing on the exciting Rosetta mission that is landing on a comet this week. This is a must see.
  • The last episode of Human Universe was brilliant and you can watch it again next Sunday at 7pm.
  • Book of the Week is all about the history of forensics – written and read by the crime author Val McDermid
  • Inside Science on Radio 4 – but you listen to that every week anyway don’t you.

Be back soon, promise.

Best wishes,
