We have all experienced the situation where, usually with the best of intentions, our work has been used without being properly acknowledged!

Rob writes: I first came across the work of theoretical physicist Richard Feynman a few years ago whilst in a muddy festival field listening to Professor Brian Cox and Robin Ince ranting about the poor grasp of science of many journalists, politicians etc etc. I have yet to read a Feynman book (let me finish PhD first), but his You tube clips are brilliant for teaching and his abilities as a science communicator are legendary.
Last night Feynman’s work for the President’s Commission into the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCLgRyKvfp0) was dramatised by the BBC and makes a powerful case study of the politics of health and safety accident investigation. For UK residents it’s available to watch until 25th March 2013 via:
