    Two interesting progs today on R4 , 1330 costing the earth discussing carbon financial issues,1630 material world discussing nuclear/ radiation impact. One expert raised interesting opinion that if Japan had been relying on offshore wind the turbines would have been ripped from seabed by tsunami.

    Yeah, that was a good listen.

    Now an addict for 'Brian Gulliver's Travels' (Mondays at 11.30). Best bit of writing for radio I've heard in years. Very, very original and funny.

    There's a study being conducted into neutrinos with sensors in old deep mine shafts, somewhere here in the UK. Been running for yonks. Wonder what they've concluded?

    Two things caught my eye
    This one has a bit about the Torrey Canyon and how they are still dealing with the oil (also nice to see where I live when it is sunny.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01168bh/Britains_Secret_Seas_Giants_of_the_West/

    This one shows that there is always something to scare us, nice old Horizon footage too.

    Wind Farm Wars BBC2 7pm Fridays. First one was last night. Will be on iPlayer.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00zn463/Windfarm_Wars_Episode_1/

    First episode covered the planning application stage of a wind farm development in Devon. The developer didn't exactly do themselves any favours by withholding wind speed and noise data.

    I gather the court case(s) are still ongoing so last episode may have to be editied.

    Not particularly about green building but I personally thought this was a fantastic look at architecture (ofter completely overlooked in developments), its impact and what people perceive to be good looking housing and what most (not me) Joe public want in a house (this part is rather depressing)

    Interesting documentary last night on BBC 4 'Between the lines - railways in fiction and film'. Discusses, amongst other things, enormous impact of railways on our way of life and makes a comparison with impact of computer technology.

    It is a repeat of that really annoying nuclear family and how they get to Zero Carbon so that they can go on holiday.
    Personally it puts me of energy saving.

    I heard it for the first time, I was interesed to hear about induction cooking as I had bought one a few weeks ago when we were about to replace our gas hob in case we needed an emergency form of cooking.

    Also they said electric underfloor heating was good, info is wellcomed as we are moving Kitchen into middle room which at present has a marley tile floor, and I've been wondering what to replace it with?
    probably carpet for now.

    I must admit the furure picture they painted was considerably worse than I had realised.

    which makes me pleased the internal insulation work we are currently doing is having such good results in cutting our bills now down to £55 a month.

    The electric heating assumed a 100% renewable supply. Why they could use electricity and it was all about carbon and not kWh. What they could have said was that 'you can use storage hearers' but people 'know' they are rubbish so they said 'underfloor' as people 'know' that id high technology and modern and must be more efficient. Electrical wires in the concrete on the floor makes a what, a storage heater?
    Don't let on to the biomass burners that their cosy wood burners did not feature in a zero carbon home :wink:
