BBC Some Does GOOD Technology Coverage!!!

I like whatever happened at the BBC recently to caused their technology coverage to reach an acceptable level of quality.

However some of their science coverage still leaves a little to be desired. This Piece on meat from cloned animals just talks through the process and doesn't cover the reasons for or against the technology. Despite my love of science and my strong belief we need to spend more on science and make greater strides, I think cloning farm animals like this is a mistake. Many cloned animals are born with defects and the farm animals we have today where created through a process of selective breeding which is perfectly adequate for our purposes.
