BBCs Newsnight contacted The Hive as they are currently working on a film involving the decline of the honeybee in the UK and around the world, and the level of research and funding that is going towards it.
The crew arrived and filmed at the shop asking questions about how we collect our honey and how the decline in bee populations will impact on pollination, global finance and the honey industry.
Earlier that day they interviewed the head of DEFRA that is responsible for addressing the UK bee decline and what can be done to support it. This should make good viewing. At present the airing date has not been confirmed. I was told it could be August 18th or 24th. So watch this page and as soon as I am told the correct airing date I’ll let you know!
