In this week's lengthy instalment we talk about the poles, including how ice cores are used to measure past climate, what happens when the poles melt and what life was like for Manchester University researchers stationed remote in Canada. We also have classical music inspired by the poles that's going to be included in the Polar Live concerts in Liverpool. In the news this week are the severe floods in Pakistan, droughts in Russia and increased beer sales in Blackburn.
