Material World - 06/12/2012

Quentin Cooper asks how to make talking about climate change less boring, and interviews DNA pioneer James Watson on the reissue of his classic work The Double Helix.

With the on-going climate talks in Doha not hitting the headlines Quentin Cooper asks whether such large scale and largely incomprehensible meetings are effective at delivering anything worthwhile on climate change. Can science take the initiative from the policymakers and present the subject in a way which interests and inspires the public?

We also interview James Watson the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA on the reissue of his classic work on the subject 'The Double Helix'.
