My good friend and colleague John Connell brought this to my attention today.
It involves the use of Glow Meet which is one component of the Glow Learning Platform that I worked on during 2006-7. Using this system an autopsy performed on a Fulmar was beamed live into Scottish classrooms and the after wards the scientist who performed the autopsy hosted a question and answer session when pupils were able to interact him.
See the article here on the BBC News website.

A sign of things to come? I think not its happening now.
