Q: Why didn't you call for Paul Henry to be taken off the air?


We focused of our campaign on the hero of the situation - Dr Dickinson and all the other brilliant women in science in New Zealand. We also based our campaign on Dr Dickinson's own response in her blog, which included the following:

Until we can get funding for a prime time dedicated science program accessible to all, scientists like me will keep having to throw in our 5 minutes wherever we can because we feel its important to talk about science. How about we use this momentum to address the issues we have with the content of the national TV shows that we fund in this country and push towards funding some more smart science ones?
