Our Mission (the show has now completed its mandate and may be revived in the future)

Among our roles are stimulation of scientific research and provision of scientific information; we will endeavour in every way possible to bring science closer to the public. We have a unique part to play in that we provide scientists, technocrats, educators and administrators with the opportunity to speak directly to the community through Community Cable. Subjects range from the Natural and Applied Sciences, mysteries of outer space, amateur inventions, environmental medicine to global warming and other environmental issues, engineering and technology as well as general interest topics to understand Nature at its finest in the broadest sense (e.g. underwater shows), and Nature's place among evolutionists as well as creationists, the last aspect not without its inherent controversy among the intellectuals as well as the interested public alike; always the attempt is to ensure relevance to issues of the day. Environmental topics are always of a great interest to us as they were the basis when the predecessor show, `In Harmony With Nature' was first taped on 15 June 1988 (Listing of tapings).
