scientist 38: the bee keeper – Steve Poyser making honey (2012)

Long-time beekeeper Steve Poyser tells us how honey bees work and how nectar turns into the stuff we buy. The Science Show’s Roger Frost asks about clear versus creamed honey. He also wonders why honey bees are called social insects when the bee at his last BBQ was more anti-social than social. Steve Poyser is an active member of Cambridgeshire Beekeepers’ Association.
