  1. Interesting to note that besides the U-tube copies, Russell Seitz is now hosting a copy of this broadcast personally. I don’t have the intestinal fortitude to go see which version he’s providing.

    It’ll be interesting to see how this spreads. I’m afraid this is the future —- video’s most convincing to people who don’t read for information.

    I suppose those distributing copies have decided to violate the copyright law in a higher cause — or was the program put into public domain?

    It would be good to see a decent science programme do a “Fundamentals Of Climate Change” or even a version of Spencer Weart’s book (or David Archer’s or Houghton’s or a mix). I know there’s AIT, but something with climate scientist talking heads and proper graphs etc. would look very good. It might need to be a multi-parter which wouldn’t help. I don’t know if Horizon or Equinox (does that still exist?) would be up to the job.

  3. I’ve watched maybe a dozen hours of TV in the past six months, so am not exactly up to speed, but I am sure that Equinox is gone, and there are few science based programs on TV. They’d rather do something about archeology.

  4. Adam: Attenborough did an excellent two parter “Are we changing Planet Earth?” It was broadcasted on CBC Newsworld as “The Truth About Global Warming”. Small clips here:

    I would suspect that BBC’s Horizon unit is already preparing a response. They always like to debunk any crap that C4 outputs.
