Our love affair with flying has an environmental cost. While aviation currently accounts for approximately 4% of greenhouse gases, scientists believe that figure will rise to over 60% by the year 2050. Should I Really Give Up Flying? takes a new look at air tourism and its impact on the environment, which should help viewers make up their minds about their own flying habits.

Presenters Ginny Buckley and Max Flint report from around the world and reveal the effects of climate change on some of the world's favourite destinations. They also explore the impact that the explosion in budget airlines could have on the environment, talking to two entrepreneurs keen to corner the potentially huge Indian middle-class market for cheap flights. The programme also takes a look at the very latest in aviation and fuel advances designed to make taking to the skies more eco-friendly. It also includes an insight into a revolutionary solar-powered plane and Sir Richard Branson's ideas for solving the emissions problem.
