BSSS has received the following contact from the Islam TV Channel reagrding a piece they wish to record on soil next week in Kent.
I am a journalist with the London-based Islam Channel where I work on the flagship lifestyle show, Living the Life. We would like to get in touch with one of your soil scientists about a feature we are producing on the concept of "virgin soil."
A new cemetery has opened in Chislehurst, Kent and the owners say there has been a particular demand for "virgin soil." We wanted to study the earth better and produce an educational clip about soil. The idea would be to examine the soil at the graveyard and explore what makes land pure and what, perhaps, contaminates it. We want to look into how long it takes for the soil to return to any level of purity as well as look into the difference between burying the dead in coffins as opposed to cloth shrouds.
Living the Life is a family-focused programme so we're looking to take technical information and convert it into easy-to-understand, bite-size television. Would you be able to help us get in touch with a relevant scientist who could meet at us for filming at the grounds? We're looking to film this next week and will require about an hour to 90-minutes of the scientist's time.
Do give me a call if you have any questions or would like further information.
