4pm this afternoon (9.11.2009) or on iplayer
 
and have heard a whisper - the one show Thursday this week- bees get a look in
 
Its actually well worth a listen - there's an interview in it with Jennifer Berry from the University of Georgia talking about CCD studies in the US (http://www.ent.uga.edu/Bees/personnel/berry.html) about 6 minutes into the show which contains some useful info (mostly about commercial beekeeping techniques and the association with CCD).
 
I thought the whole thing was a good listen - they covered a great many aspects of bees and beekeeping, featured top notch people like Jennifer Berry and Bees for Development, and ended up with an interview with a lady who's name escaped me who's investigated the healing properties of the products of bees (and has come to some interesting conclusions!) - full marks to the beeb - a good'un!
 
yes it was a good listen. not particularly technical but it was the food show after all.

Yes, a smattering about bees tonight on the One Show- so expect new enquiries about people wanting to learn !
