BBC Radio 4 Today Programme visit to Ny-Alesund 10 – 14 March

7th March 2019

We’re really excited and pleased to say that the NERC Arctic Station in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard, will be hosting BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme next week, including science editor Tom Feilden and presenter Martha Kearney.

Media plans are always flexible, but they are planning to cover the science teams that the Station is supporting, including from Aberystwyth, Newcastle, Manchester and BAS, as well as the Station itself and the international community there. They have also done pre-records with colleagues from Edinburgh, Exeter and beyond. You can read about the recent science supported at the Station here:

This will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase UK Arctic science and to convey the wider story about the UK’s investment, excellence and partnerships. Please do take the opportunity next week to promote your work and partnerships. We will be tweeting from @Arctic_Office and using the hashtag #UKinArctic
