Green In The Media 13th - 19th August

Without any fanfare, the World Service have decided to stop broadcasting their environmental programme One Planet. It's been a welcome and much-loved (by me at least) mainstay on the channel since 1997. While others were ignoring environmental stories, One Planet gave them airtime. I'm very disappointed. If you want to hear the last episode, which is a round-up of their "Greatest Hits", it's on Monday and for the next week on the iPlayer.

I am glad it was an enjoyable experience for you. I think that you should definitely do it again sometime and hopefully I will be able to make it to that one.
