It's not often we hand over Radio Times to a third party. But this month's Earth Day gave us an opportunity to call on an old friend of the magazine, Chris Packham, to ask him to grace our cover and also sit in the editor's chair for one week.


The result is this week's special edition of RT in which many of the features are devoted to some of the issues that Chris holds dear.

Elsewhere, the rest of the magazine remains as it should: at your service, with all the usual guidance for TV, radio and streaming.

The Earth Day special issue of Radio Times magazine is out now – subscribe to Radio Times here.
