For all you avid geographers out there, the 'Give Geography It's Place' team have been campaigning for organisations to recognise Geography as a subject in its own right, not just bundled in with science.
A breakthrough has been made! In the the BBC news report below, the reporter uses the word 'Geographers' rather than going for the common term 'Scientists'. Is this the beginning of greater things for Geography? Lets hope so!!

Just a quick message to apologise for the lack of posts recently.
I have had my 'home' broadband cancelled as I try to switch providers. The 'lovely' Tiscali are testing my patience by not removing the 'tags' from my line. Therefore, I am left with no internet for over a month!
I hope to have the situation resolved soon (now OFCOM are involved!), so please return to the site soon as I will update a significant amount of information when I'm back online.
