Green Dean takes time-out from feeding the Elephants at the Zoo to report from the Green Desk. For our final week Dean is going to dress up as Green Santa and tell us who’s been naughty and nice to the environment.

Imogen gives us her pick of the MAG OF THE YEAR! It’s sure to be a corker.

OK, that’s us for the year. Noelle and David would like to that everyone that’s come on the show this year and made the WIRE totally awesome.
