Blue Peter goes Green

The popular BBC children’s’ program ‘Blue Peter’ is about to be renamed ‘Green Peter’ on 29th May. The entire program will be devoted to eco and ‘green’ issues and much of it has been filmed at the Hockerton Housing Project, Nottinghamshire.

The program will look at ways its young audience can help limit the effects of climate change.

"Green Peter won't be a list of scare stories, the purpose will be to focus on what is being done, what can be done, what needs to be done to protect the world the Blue Peter audience will inherit." (Richard Mason, Blue Peter Editor).

This year the program will celebrate its 50th year on TV and this is the first time they have dedicated an entire program to environmental issues. You can watch it on BBC 1 at 5.00pm, Tuesday 29th May.
