Introductory remarks for [British Academy] Review, July-December 2000 issue.
As part of the Academy’s outreach activities, a report examining the relationship between science and the media was launched at a seminar held at the British Academy on 12 September 2000. An invited panel responded to a presentation given by the author of the report, Professor Ian Hargreaves. The event aimed to highlight the important contribution social science has towards bridging the gulf of understanding between the public, media and science. Professor Hargreaves describes some main issues that were discussed at the event.
