It's true – there are too few women presenting science on TV | Kim Shillinglaw

Kim Shillinglaw, BBC commissioning editor for science and natural history, responds to accusations that not enough women are given the chance to present science on TV

It's not often you see not one but two physicists (Brian Cox and Jim Al-Khalili) popping up on Harry Hill's TV Burp, and it's even more unusual for one of them (Jim) to be wearing a wig while playing a Beatles track.

It's one more piece of evidence that science is enjoying a cultural renaissance, and that science presenters are shining on television as never before. Brian, Jim, Iain Stewart, Marcus du Sautoy ... I could go on. But the party-pooping question some people have posed, including Alom Shaha in a thought-provoking post last year on this blog, is where are all the Female science presenters?

Over the years we've had some very strong women on science television – Kathy Sykes and Lesley Regan to name just two. »
