Cinema Politca Newcastle's 3rd screening!
with guest speakers Geraldine Wright (Newcastle University, School of Biology and the Institute of Neuroscience) & Kym Pritchard (Beekeeper and founder of 'Beekeeping Courses North')
Imagine half a million adults skipping town and leaving their children behind. Picture an opened suitcase filled with bundles of cash at a bus stop and yet no robber wants to snatch it. The apiary science mystery known as “Colony Collapse Disorder” displays these very symptoms. Not only do the bees abandon their hive, but the queen and the brood as well. Unnatural. Unheard of. Even the predators that usually raid the hive for honey stay far away. At first, this occurrence sounds like an urban legend or an exaggerated tale. Except it’s not. The situation is both dire and all too real. Bees are disappearing all over the planet and no one knows why.
Our events are free and open to all.
