Radio 4’s PM programme has been having a “science” week this past week. The idea being that they invite a variety of scientists to speak about the research they are doing in their respective fields. Often, scientists are only interviewed as a result of current news items and they are invited to comment on the “science” elements of these stories. The PM programme has moved away from this in the past week, speaking to a number of scientists about their research, for the sake of the research (rather than a news story). Listen to their interviews on the BBC website. It makes for interesting listening.
