When should children be allowed onto Facebook? The site says it only accepts users over the age of 13. New research published this week by Internet security giant McAfee and the Anti-Bullying Alliance says that most children use the Internet away from their parents' watchful eyes (which I can quite understand).
Less Than Zero was written and performed by an unknown with the unlikely name of Elvis Costello. That someone should have the chutzpah to steal the name of the King of rock'n'roll seemed preposterous: Elvis Presley was still alive at the time. This, I told myself, had better be good! And it was just that.
I first met Bryan online nearly two years ago, during a series of interviews for a BBC Radio 4 series called Don't Log Off that has been on the air since January 2012. The concept of the show is to seek out people's stories from all over the world - not by traditional or conventional research methods.
'Yeah, he won the Tour de France seven times,' are the last words spoken in the much hyped documentary The Armstrong Lie. The words are spoken by Lance Armstrong himself. Lance Armstrong the self-confessed drugs cheat, fraud, liar and bully. If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that Lance Armstrong certainly didn't win the Tour de France seven times.
Over the last three months, I've been making a film for ITV's Exposure strand on Britain's cannabis industry. I wanted to take a different approach to the usual 'blue light', following the police style of law and order programming that we've seen a lot of on our screens in recent years and get inside the cannabis business to see it from the criminals point-of-view.
This documentary is a personal portrait of the professor himself, author of the bestselling title "A Brief History of Time". It follows his life from his birth to middle-class parents in Oxford, his early childhood and life as an undergraduate at Oxford to his work on the physics of black holes, as well as the onset of the disease that would eventually cripple him.
When I was asked to think about a project drawing on the musical history of Carnaby (Carnaby Street itself plus the 12 streets that surround it), I thought about what it meant for a place to be so strongly associated with a time, in the way Carnaby Street has been with the 1960s. Often when I have mentioned the project to people, they have answered by talking about 'that time' as if it only existed then.
These three million children are not just growing up in material poverty, but in environmental poverty. They can not afford nature... Children growing up in deprived areas are more likely to be underweight at birth, and obese in their teens. They are at much greater risk from accidental injury in the home and tend to perform worse at school.
I thought Peretti and his team did a good job of exposing the quick fix diet industry but didn't show the other side of the industry where you have some amazingly passionate and purposeful professionals who are truly helping people in a well thought out structured manner which is what essentially a diet is. Diet after all is just a 4 letter word for what you eat.
The more and more I think about it, the more I know that it's the story telling aspect of being a photographer that interests me and not just the story that makes up the key events of the wedding day, but the little stories. The seemingly insignificant. The things that will be forgotten if they're not recorded. What was happening in-between.
What has grabbed the most headlines has been our decision to broadcast the Muslim call to prayer, the adhan, live each morning. We hope that in broadcasting the call to prayer each morning at sunrise - at around 3am - it will recognise Muslims observing Ramadan and will encourage interested parties to find out more about this religious festival means.
