I got a call on Wednesday to tell me that Radio 4’s Today Programme wants me on to discuss the point of pandas with BBC natural history presenter Chris Packham. You’ll remember that he said – in my opinion – some strange things about pandas back in 2009. I blogged about this at the time and have talked to a lot of people who were really annoyed by what he said. I’ll admit that the responsiblity of being the one to represent their views – especially on Today – is somewhat daunting. But someone needs to do it!

Originally, Today was talking about this happening this morning but they hadn’t got in touch last night. It may yet happen, on Monday, apparently. I’m game. But is Packham?

Today Programme?
