The Naked Scientists need our help!
These guys are worthy of our support!

The Naked Scientists are a media-savvy group of physicians and researchers from Cambridge University who use radio, live lectures, and the Internet to strip science down to its bare essentials, and promote it to the general public. Their award winning BBC weekly radio programme, The Naked Scientists, reaches a potential audience of 6 million listeners across the east of England, and also has an international following on the web.

Each week, listeners of all ages and backgrounds tune in on a Sunday evening to hear creator Dr. Chris Smith, together with his entertaining sidekicks, interview renowned scientists and researchers from all over the world and take science questions on any subject live from the listening public.

In addition to the radio show, the group has organised Naked Science at Borders, a public lecture series enabling the community to attend informative presentations given by some of the UK's most celebrated scientists. They have also put together this website to allow the radio show, lectures, and much more to be accessible world-wide. According to Dr. Smith, the basic goal of the Naked Scientists "is to help people enjoy science as much as we do and, at the same time, to have fun."

As it stands, the Naked Scientists will no longer be aired by the BBC in the east of England from January. Schedules are being altered and it has not been possible to obtain an alternative slot, bringing to an end almost 10 years of our being a unique example of a specialist science show on BBC local and regional radio.

Listeners are urged to direct their suggestions and ideas to the BBC's Feedback programme - - and to the BBC Trust -
