BBC Horizon programme about environmental and other factors damaging bees (not just honeybees)

For anyone who missed the broadcast of this programme last Friday evening (2nd August) it is now available on the iPlayer at

An interesting programme that didn’t pretend to find immediate answers but rather pointed to what are likely to be the most significant factors and outlined some of the research being carried out in relation to them. It was good to see that all bees, not just honeybees, were recognised as being affected and thus the increasing impact on our ecology.
