Scientists and journalists need different things from science. Discuss.

Recent debates on copy-checking of science-based articles in the media have exposed a gulf between what journalists do and what some scientists think journalists should do.

Dr Alice Bell chairs a debate that explores how these groups can better-understand the work and intentions of the other, and whether it matters.

In part one, Ananyo Bhattacharya, Chief Online Editor at Nature, Chris Chambers, from Cardiff University's School of Psychology, science writer Ed Yong, and Head of the UK's Science Media Centre, Fiona Fox, present their views on what scientists and journalists need from each other. 

Watch the discussion that followed here.

This event was held at the Royal Institution on Tuesday 13 March 2012 and forms part of a series curated for the Ri by Alok Jha.
