Radio Show: Trees

Earth Beat, 4 May 2012. We go all arborophile, or tree-hugger, as we celebrate the joys of tree. What we use them for, how to climb them, how to chuck them out of an aeroplane… In-tree-gued? Listen to the show for more bad puns...

Radio Show: Artificial

Earth Beat, 27 April 2012. Everything is not as it seems, as we explore the artificial world. From robots that plough the fields then scatter, to man-made coral reefs. Faking it for nature. Comment on this show or listen to...

Radio Show: Necessary Evils

Earth Beat, 20 April 2012. Necessary evils, like the tar sands in Canada. The fact is, we could use the oil, but is it worth the obliteration of a once-pristine forest landscape? Hear from a woman who treats her painful arthritis with yet...

Radio Show: Cunning Plans

Radio Show: Foreign Bodies

Earth Beat, 23 March 2012. Things that turn up in the unlikeliest of places. Like sea salt full of prescription drugs, or pesticides in the Arctic. And the man searching the Amazon for a tribe he’s not allowed to contact. Foreign...

Radio Show: Feeding Ourselves

Earth Beat, 16 March 2012. Food, glorious food - we examine the cost of a full belly. We look at clever new ways of putting stuff on our plate, protecting the traditional techniques for feeding ourselves, and why every third mouthful we...

Radio Show: Natural Disasters

Earth Beat, 9 March 2012. We brave tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, landslides, avalanches, cyclones, floods, fires, blizzards, just to get stories for you. Fire, brimstone, catastrophe! Natural disasters... and us...
