Chris Cox from the Cambourne-based “IP access” talks to the Science Show’s Roger Frost. Chris explains how mobile phones talk to radio masts; how signals decrease inside buildings and how femtocells (aka ‘small cells’) can improve signals in places and buildings with a weak signal.

Following the news that the sponsors of the London Olympic games include a fizzy drink maker; a fast food restaurant and a chocolate brand, we go in search of good advice on diet. We meet Cambridge GP, Dr Simon Poole who offered his knowledge on healthy food. He talks about different types of fat; the difference Omega-3 and Omega-6 and the Mediterranean diet.
