Science in the media in the media.

The Archive Hour on BBC Radio 4 (Saturday, 8pm GMT) promises to be a good listen for those of us interested in communicating science and the media's mediating role.

In 'Putting it Simply'
Kathy Sykes charts the way that science has been seen and heard on radio and television, from the postwar lectures on the Third Programme to the animation of Walking with Dinosaurs.
The Archive Hour is usually Finest Kind Broadcasting, and I hope this lives up to the strand's high standards.

Should the programme provoke any debate about science communication in comments, please don't let it be dominated by the F word (framing). Listen live from the BBC Radio 4 website or if you're otherwise engaged you can listen at you leisure by going to Archive Hour homepage and use the archive to listen again.
