Yet another thing keeping me busy has been making my second BBC Radio 4 documentary, following last year’s Fighting the Power of Pink.
This time producer Julian Mayers and I set out to answer the question “Whatever happened to the chemistry set?”
The programme is going out on BBC Radio 4 at 9pm tonight (Wednesday 1st August) and will be on iPlayer for a week after that. I’ve also written a short piece about it for the Guardian’s Science Blog, and there’s a nice article in the BBC Magazine.
Perhaps most excitingly of all, it was featured in the Radio Times! (I’ll scan in the paper copy when I get home…)
Have a listen, let me know what you think:
Huge thanks to Julian Mayers at Testbed Productions for actually doing the hard work, while I just chatted to people and played with the chemicals
