The need to present scientific research to a popular audience is becoming increasingly apparent. Presenting arid zone research in the media, particularly on television, raises a number of difficulties that are best solved through planning and preparation. Awareness of the logistical problems that will be encountered as well as the procedures required for putting together a story for television is the most effective element in producing a finished story that both the field researchers and the television crew will be happy with.
