    how Margaret Thatcher helped put the environment on the political map; the effect of the Rio Earth summit of 1992; and the rise of popular radical environmental movements in the UK.

  5. LIVE coverage - MPs conclude Rupert Murdoch ‘not fit’ to lead major international company

    Our media team on the third report from the UK government’s culture select committee into phone-hacking at the News of the World:

    The report accuses three former News International executives of lying to parliament and misleading a House of Commons inquiry into phone hacking at the News of the World.

    The select committee charged the former News International chief executive Les Hinton with being complicit in a cover-up of wrongdoing at Rupert Murdoch’s media empire.

    The cross-party group of MPs said that Colin Myler, former editor of the News of the World, and ex-legal boss Tom Crone deliberately withheld crucial information and answered questions falsely.

    The executives demonstrated contempt for parliament in the most blatant fashion, the MPs said, in what they described as a corporate attempt to mislead the committee about the true extent of phone hacking at the News of the World.
