There has been considerable media interest following Frank’s observations about decreasing understanding of sundials, the latest being an item about dials in Cambridge from the local BBC radio station. Listen to it here, the item starts at about 54m 30s and runs for about 4 minutes.

There’s also a more extensive article in The Daily Mail which at least picks up the concern over a decline in understanding of geometrical concepts – with all this publicity, perhaps things will change!

UPDATED 28th February: media interest continues, apparently unabated. There is further coverage at Anglia Regional News. Spotting the possibly new type of sundial is left as an exercise for the viewer!
