Glamping in an hobbit hole (but not this one). (Image source:

Sorry for the short and late post again – I have been without internet and electricity for the last 48 hours, in a hobbit hole somewhere in North Yorkshire. Lovely but not a particularly conducive environment for producing TV and Radio guides :). Luckily @MrsDrSarah has done the hard work and collated all the programmes.

Picks of the Week

Jim Al Khalili is talking to geneticist Jenny Graves in The Life Scientific. The final episode of Scientific Britannica is on Wednesday, where Prof. B. Cox will be explaining what Science is.  Also look out for Pain, Pus and Poison: The Search for Modern Medicine with Dr Michael Mosley looking into what pain is and how it is controlled. If you are a primary teacher doing a project on British Wildlife, there is a radio programme about Scottish Salmon aimed at KS1 children on very early in the morning.  And our last pick is Costing the Earth on the recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Great for debate for how science and politics interact.

A comment was made by some colleagues last week that needs passing to the TV and Radio science producers: chemistry teachers are feeling hard done by – more chemistry please. 🙂
