On the subject of TV programmes, it was worrying to see BBC's Countryfile (7.10.12 39.20mins) showing a cup of antifreeze being used to trap insects with no warnings being given as to how toxic this is to domestic pets and wildlife. There was no protection over the cup and while Adam's Farm might be private land it is worrying that others may try the same experiment in parks etc without realising how deadly the results could be. It would be great if you could raise this with the BBC and try and get them to issue a warning ASAP. I have written but it will probably have more impact coming from you.
Best wishes
