With Christmas comes the inevitable flurry of Christmas specials and classic repeats on the TV and radio. At 8pm on Friday Saving Species are having their Christmas special. Hosted by Bristol University, panellists will discuss the global population and the issues this raises for conserving resources and species as well as whether realistically we can do anything about it. With audience questions and a panel discussion the programme looks to be interesting and a bit of a change from the festive music and repeated topics of what to cook, what to buy and what to do that I'll be listening to the rest of the week.
Also did you know that over Christmas 83 square kilometres of wrapping paper will end up in bins across the UK? I'm going to make sure I use as little tape as possible when wrapping and try to open my presents carefully so I can hopefully reuse the paper next year. It's rubbish that most wrapping paper can't be recycled.
