  • BBC abandons plan to run Planet Relief, a TV special on climate change. [9] Friends of the Earth's Tony Juniper: "This is a very disappointing decision considering the huge potential for the BBC in helping us more quickly make the shift toward a low carbon society. The science of climate change is very clear and if approached in the right way taking up this very serious issue would not compromise the BBC's impartiality. After all, the corporation has worked in a similar manner to that intended for Planet Relief on child welfare, international development and wildlife protection. We urge the BBC to press ahead with a major feature on climate change and to think through how best it can serve its public interest purpose by encouraging greener behaviour". September 5. topic
