Last year Britain's premier scientific organisation, the Royal Society, set up a committee on the public understanding of science, in the belief that widespread scientific ignorance and lack of public support have contributed to a decline of British research. Its objective: to find a way of saving British science from the cultural ghetto.
With the help of an opinion poll commissioned by Radio 4, Georgina Ferry assesses public attitudes to science, and conducts a wide-ranging debate over the state of science education in Britain's schools, the adequacy of scientific coverage in the media, and whether scientists do enough to promote the importance and excitement of their own subject. Talking part Robert Jackson mp, Professor Dennis Noble , Dr Joan Solomon and Bernard Dixon

historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
