Don’t be put off by the title! “Let’s write non-fiction” is a series of Children’s BBC programmes. Some episodes are very much about the craft of writing, but this one focuses on the science of cloning as a topic on which students could write. I was surprised by how good the content actually was. The style is a bit “Newsround-y” and so this will limit the relevance to University students, but would be very useful with Secondary students. The programme has been transmitted a number of times, but readers with access to the British Universities Film and Video Council archive could order a copy – the TRILT access code is 005722FC.
