BBC’s Home Planet Lands At Our Dynamic
Earth

BBC Radio 4’s Home Planet, the interactive
environmental programme, has selected Edinburgh’s popular visitor attraction,
Our Dynamic Earth, to record a programme in front of an audience, to be
aired on Tuesday 25th March. Members of the public are invited to join
the studio audience on Sunday 2 March and pose their environmental questions
to the prestigious panel of scientists and conservationists.

Hosted by Richard Daniel, the programme tackles
queries about the planet and our interaction with it from astronomy to
geology, biology and environmental science. The audience sets the agenda,
posing questions to the panel, which will be comprised of Professor Philip
Stott, Emeritus Professor of Biogeography in the University of London,
evolutionary biologist Dr Barbara Mable of the University of Glasgow and
geologist Professor Martin Siegert of the University Of Edinburgh.

The programme will be pre-recorded at Our
Dynamic Earth on Sunday 2 March at 1pm. Members of the public are invited
to come and be part of the studio audience, and those who would like to
pose a question to the panel in person should send their question in advance
by email, post or via the BBC Audience Line, marked 'Edinburgh'. For further
