Shame one of the presenters thinks she is talking to the under fives. Are you listening AR?

Much as I like the show I do not appreciate the judges mickey taking of the entrants work. Jo Brand, comedienne does not provide any knowlegeable input whatever and its not fair to put down peoples efforts in order to raise a laugh. It spoilt an otherwise well connect nature programme.

Ignorant, ill informed disinformation post in a guise to promote nuclear. Hydro, Solar and wind generated power is utterly sustainable after initial investment. The powers that be do not want cheap electricity, they want expensive electricity generated by oil, gas & coal powered generation plants. They want to keep everyone reliant on fossil fuels (Oil mainly) so they can control the Global economic situation by the petro dollar!

I was dismayed by the feature on wind farms.You need to send a technical expert to discuss pro's and con's with the operators.The operators quote wind farm capacity yetfail to mention actual generation is about 25% of this. Equivalent backup power generation capacity has to be on standby for when the wind speed is outside the turbine operating limits. The cost of wind power is more than £150/megawatthour compared with £100 or less for other types of generation. Our politicians have made a mess of energy policy through ignorance and timidity - we should have decided on nuclear 10 years ago.

Saddened by failure to research the issue
I was very disappointed by the failure to accurately research and report on the impact of wind farms. It appeared that the whole article was taken straight from the PR brochure of a developer rather than being based on the facts. For example, good for the environment. What about the CO2 cost of their construction? Or the CO2 cost of the inefficient gas powered generators are the only type able to adjust to the fluctuations in power output of a wind turbine. You mentioned the jobs created by the developers, but failed to mention the job losses in the tourism industry. You mentioned the profits for landowners. But failed to mention that government policy is to build windfarms on land controlled by the government so the subsidies added to our energy bills are just another form of taxation. Very very disappointed about such an inaccurate report.

We settled down to watch - and its all over!! Did you tell us last week about the time change? My wife loves it, I love the weather bit. We both missed out.
