The BBC website contains a number of video clips from features related to wind farms - click here


BBC Radio 4 - Costing the Earth - 30th August 2007

"Wind power is the fastest growing renewable energy sector in Britain. The government is investing massive amounts of money in its future. But experts interviewed on Costing the Earth claim the power of the wind to deliver electricity is being overestimated by companies keen to cash in on big subsidies."

Listen again to the programme & read more on the BBC website:

For an interesting TV broadcast on the effects of wind turbines on local residents - especially the noise - see the LBV Television programme available on the Wadlow Windfarm website. [This is a large file. It may take a very long time to open - but is well worth listening to].
