question of science

Melvyn Bragg finishes off his In Our Time newsletter this week by asking:

'How is it that every scientist I meet, or have met, over the last few years ... speak of a serious pessimism and distress at the teaching, funding and organisation of science in this country, which for two or three centuries has contributed so astonishingly to the success of pure science and to the invention of the modern world?'

For one answer, see neolithic present and neolithic present (2).
