BBC Focus is a British monthly magazine about science and technology published in Bristol, UK by Immediate Media Company. Edited by Graham Southorn it covers all aspects of science and technology and is written for general readers as well as people with a knowledge of science. The magazine was taken over by BBC Magazines in mid-2005. There are also regular science celebrity features and interviews.
As of issue #173, The Guide section of the magazine had a small redesign with increased focus on interactive media, with newly separate sections for Games reviews and the web including a new column on web issues such as collaborative video editing with the header 'Happening'. The Update section of the magazine now contains:
Month in numbers
Good news/Bad news
Your vote (where a question is asked, such as "Would you eat less meat to save the planet?" or "Do we need better defences for an asteroid hit?" and readers answer and a graph is made)
Round Up (The month's top science stories from around the world)
The burning question (an expert writes a very small essay on a question)
