8:30 Window on The World
As large areas of the world have locked down this year, many of us have become more aware of the birdsong around us. The relative silence has allowed us to listen in. But scientists have known for several years that the birds themselves have been responding to human noise too, by pitching their songs and other calls higher, to be heard over the rumble of our urban life.
9:07 Our Changing World
This week, it's award night again on Our Changing World, and Alison Ballance meets a couple of researchers who have won top research prizes.
