Today on More or Less

Today’s show covers speed cameras, counting birds to track avian epidemics, quants and the credit crunch, and a way to halve measured hospital waiting times with a spot of clever counting. Radio 4, 4.30pm today – or podcast from the website.

Update: No quants or credit crunch today; middle-class drinking instead. Credit crunch next week; sorry.
