SNAIL MAIL

When did you last write a letter? New, faster ways of communicating have made the traditional letter a threatened species. But maybe the future of the post is in parcels! Sophia looks at how the postal system works and how it's coping with changing technology.

CHRISTMAS TREES

One of the decorations that gets many of us into the festive spirit is the Christmas Tree. You can buy a single-use tree from a farm or an artificial one that lasts for years. Kirsty unwraps the origin of the tradition and finds out if either tree is better for the environment.

BASEBALL
