Zoologist Dr George McGavin looks at the odd, and often amusing, names given to insects in The Etymology Of Entomology. This documentary was great fun to produce and was independent production company Folded Wing's first commission for BBC Radio 4.
The programme was chosen as BBC Radio 4’s Documentary Of The Week and was in the Radio Times’ top 5 programmes of the week.
An in-depth article on the subject of entomological taxonomy helped to promote the programme on the BBC Science and Environment website. Plus a blog post on Folded Wing’s website gave a behind the scene account of the making of the documentary.
A Folded Wing production for BBC Radio 4. Broadcast in March 2013.
