Post by Euan Buchan »

Interesting documentary about how airlines might reduce their environment impact, on BBC 1 now will probably be on IPlayer later.

Grow up, in this case it was obvious (with a little exercise of those dusty grey cells) what he meant.

Anyway, if we're being really pedantic, please could you stop using a grave accent (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grave_accent) when you should be using one of these ' ?

Also, I assume that your question to Euan is rhetorical, rather than that you've missed off the ? .

Thought the programme looked interesting, should I watch the whole thing or not though?

Convince me...

How about the next programme be - Can the media go green ??
Many times a major story breaks, and the media all rush to cover it. I've no problem with that. However. How about using the local crews to cover it ?
Major news item in Northern Ireland. BBC sends a name from the news room to cover it. Use the crews that are in position already. Dont send Huw Edwards or any of the other overpaid people - on expenses of course- to cover it.

Just recently with all the furore over something happening at Westminster. BBC Scotland have sent the anchorpeople down to London to talk to Scottish MPs. We also have another anchorperson in the studio. Use video conferencing for goodness sake.

Also why does BBC six and Ten have to use camera crew from head office. When local crew will be in position to film Sally Magnussen for BBC Scotland ??

I could go on about sports talking heads having to actually be in the country where sporting events are happening. But doubt if Panorama would be interested in that either

Absolutely this... I remember a few years ago when the Malaysian Airlines flight was shot down allegedly (or not) by the Russians, Sky TV sent Colin Brazier to the field where the debris had landed. His news report, live on TV, included him rifling through deceased person's baggage. What a 'word removed.'

And on top of this how about they actually talk about the cause of the crisis, as with the current flooding in Yorkshire and with Australia being on fire, yet not a mention that it is being caused by Climate Change and that the entire World's climate is in crisis right NOW!

Stop stepping around the subject and actually talk, or better still, do something about it.

40 years of warning about what we should be doing, yet all the World's governments are procrastinating over it as they are too scared to be the first to take the drastic action that IS required.

Replace "how" with "must" and we might be making some tiny, tiny steps in the right direction. Looking at "how" they can change is too late, the World can't wait another 20 years - ACT NOW!!!

How they might vs how they must

Every little certainly helps. The airlines, us flying less etc...

Was rather interesting maybe 30 minutes when it showed some Airline footage then after nothing.

You are saying the floods and wildfires are caused by climate change? :question:
