This Horizon (BBC) programme looks at what may be responsible for the deaths of bee colonies.

“Bill Turnbull investigates one of the biggest mysteries in the British countryside: what is killing our bees. It is a question that generates huge controversy. Changes in the weather, pesticides and even a deadly virus have all all been blamed. It is a question that Bill is all too familiar with as a beekeeper himself. He meets the scientists who are fitting minute radar transponders on to bees to try to find answers.”

The programme is available on the iPlayer until the 2nd September.
