Bellerbys Economics - Mr Stephenson

Watch TV!!!

Absolutely essential that you should watch the 'Money Programme' this Friday, June 2nd at 7pm on BBC2. Make sure everyone else know too!!

The programme is on emissions trading systems which is at the heart of Module 3. The programme will discuss Kyoto, the EU emissions trading scheme and the pressure within some of the US states for the development of local schemes.

The Money Programme is now 40 years old. They have their own website which includes ALL the programmes from the lat five years here:

The Money Programme is now sponsored by the Open University - which in itself is a government-sponsored online university which allows students (including you in theory) to follow courses or degrees in the evenings whilst continuing to work. A couple of years ago I taught a Singaporean student at Bellerbys who was taking her first-year Law degree modules through the OU whilst taking her A-levels at Bellerbys - she got grade A for all her A-levels and also passed her Law exams!

  • This time money program was noting about economics (and money)...

  • Yes - it was a very disappointing episode wasn't it? It only mentioned the Economics in passing and focussed entirely on a family trying to use less electricity - not very good.

    I must admit the Money Programme has gone downhill in the last year and is now taking a more tabloid approach to money/economics issues - even though there are many other programmes that already do this - but there are no other Economics programmes.

    Another step in the decline of the BBC perhaps as a serious educational medium
