As part of the celebration of our ten year anniversary in 2012, a special film was commissioned about the Science Media Centre. Featuring some of the top scientists, journalists and press officers who worked with us in the first decade, the film covers how and why the SMC was set up and the methods by which the Centre works from day-to-day. The film and other anniversary materials can be found here.

review of the first three years of the mental health research function at the smc
In May 2010 the Science Media Centre (SMC) appointed a press officer dedicated to mental health research. It was hoped that having a dedicated press officer in this area would ensure that the SMC had more opportunity to focus continually on mental health research regardless of the other topics in the news at the time. As this post is now almost three years old, it seems an appropriate time to review whether we have achieved the recommendations set out in the original consultation.
views from the front line – essays on the SMC
As part of the Centre’s 10th anniversary celebrations, a collection of essays on key moments for science and the media from the first decade of the SMC’s existence were commissioned. Written by the scientists, journalists and press officers involved, the essays paint a picture of the effect the SMC has had on UK science-media relations.
