Wild Arabia

This is a radio program on BBC4 at 9-9:30 pm about wildlife in Arabia. It is described as:
"The Natural History of the Middle East: With Tessa McGregor. 1/3: Three Continents Clash. Tessa looks at the ingenious strategies that plants and animals have evolved to survive."

While it's not about UK wildlife, I have heard it talked about a couple of times and it is a very interesting program. I'm not usually a big fan of radio but was recommended this and sure I will really enjoy it.

It may not be about the UK, but it's about a part of the world which has some difficult conditions to contend with. Survival strategies are fascinating.

There are artciles about this programme as well as others on the BBC 'Nature' Blog which is well worth visiting.

Glad you enjoyed it. I think you can/will be able to listen to the programs on the website once they have been posted (if they haven't been already) so I'm going to try and catch up on the ones I missed at some point.

RE: Wild Arabia

At the moment there is only one of the segments in podcast format which is here.

I am pleased that the BBC is embracing the podcast medium as I more than often make a mental note to listen to something and then miss the broadcast.

The BBC nature blog has been through a few guises, Planet Earth Under Threat, Natures Spring Diary etc and for the Natures Spring Diary they invloved the public to give their impressions on spring to create the radio programme and then released it as a podcast on the Nature blog. Grant Sonex the producer of the Natures Spring Diary was working on a future project to invlove individuals perspectives of nature via a podcasting format I seem to remember which would be interesting to hear.

Mind I am quite biased in that area as I am quite heavily into producing 'podcasts' on the nature and history front.

RE: Wild Arabia

It is encouraging that the BBC allow so many of their programs to be listened too after the original broadcast. I'm like chascreek in that I often want to listen to a program, but often end up missing it. I haven't used the podcast medium myself, I use the BBC's radio player, but having the program downloaded to listen to at my leisure does sound appealing.
