BBC Radio 4 Tardigrade 27 June 11.00 am

BBC Radio 4 Tardigrade 27 June 11.00 am | Nature Flash | Scoop.it
Tardigrade. First described in 1773 and so named because they resemble slow-moving bears, these microscopic animals are probably the closest thing to an alien we are likely to encounter. Capable of living without water and then being revived after 30 years, the Tardigrade or moss-piglet as they are also called, challenge our ideas about what defines life. And as if that wasn't enough, they are probably the cutest little creature you could hope to meet! Presented by Bret Westwood with special guests and interventions by nature writer Paul Evans. Producer Sarah Blunt.

At Lackford Lakes with<br/>Melissa Harrison, Suffolk Festival of Idea.    | Nature Flash | Scoop.it

'Hosting the event in a bird hide flavored it with a sense of theater. It brought people into a building built into a landscape that aimed to camouflage, rendering them invisible to the wildlife outside.

 

On that day the clapping of wings was drowned out by the clapping of hands, the cries of wading birds became woven into the threads of poetic words that chased one another out of the mouths of poets and story-tellers'.
