This is to remind you that tomorrow, December 31, 2009, and on January 7, 2010, the BBC World Service (audio) will do a 2-part documentary program entitled One Planet: Animals and Us.
The documentary is produced Victor Schonfeld, who did the influential The Animals Film (narrated by Julie Christie) in 1982. Schonfeld will ask whether the animal movement has made progress in the years since he did The Animals Film.
The BBC World Service is the most listened to radio broadcast in the world. So whether you like or do not like what Schonfeld says, know that this program will be heard by millions of people and will have an influence in how they think about the issue.
Again: there will be two parts: December 31, 2009 and January 7, 2010.
Go here to find out where and when you can listen live in your area. The show will be archived. The BBC World Service Site is here. The site will have extended material attached to the archived program.
