The Jodrell Bank Song

When the STFC announced that funding for MERLIN/e-MERLIN might be axed, and Jodrell Bank Observatory said that that could lead to closure of the observatory, I don't think anyone quite expected the public outcry. Local media in Cheshire and Manchester took it upon themselves to campaign to save the Observatory using the 76-m Lovell Telescope as the focal point. The Manchester Evening News started a campaign as did local radio station Silk FM. Silk FM have now released a campaign video to YouTube. There can't be that many scientific organisations/facilities that get unsolicited, popular campaigns to save them.
