As someone who spends a good bit of time each day involved in coverage of the BP oil spill for The Times-Picayune in New Orleans, I’m pretty familiar with the work that’s being done by other  news organizations. I missed this nice audio slideshow from the BBC though, so I thought it was worth showing, even if it is a couple of weeks old. The issues depicted here haven’t changed any in the last two weeks, unfortunately.

The BBC has been doing a lot of great reporting on the oil spill. This is just one piece of that fine work. Cheers to you, BBC!
