BBSRC Plants vs. Explosives

'BBSRC Plants vs Explosives' Film from Media Trust on Vimeo.

BBSRC is the lead funding agency for academic research and training in the biosciences at universities and institutes throughout the UK. Pollution from explosives can pose a risk to both the environment and public health, so it is vitally important that cost-effective ways of dealing with it are found. One way could be to use plants.  

Challenge:
BBSRC approached Media Trust to do a set of six animations and one dramatisation to promote how plant science is making a difference. 

Outcome:
Everyday, scientists are working to help rewrite our future stories by finding ways to help solve the world's most pressing problems. They are finding new ways of combatting the diseases that are killing our nation's trees and helping to identify the threats to our farms. They are breeding new varieties of wheat to cope with climate change and helping to improve potato crops. These are just some of the ways research is helping to protect our future.
