Nicola Lacey is Senior Research Fellow and Professor of Criminal Law and Legal Theory at All Souls College, Oxford.

For the final programme of this year, Mediawatch acknowledges some of the less glorious achievements in the media in 2010, and names and shames some of those responsible. Mediawatch also looks at how the world's media were firmly focused on Copenhagen at this time last year, and the warnings of dire consequences when world leaders failed to do a deal on climate change. So why were the media so much less interested in the crucial climate meeting in Mexico this month?
Produced and presented by Colin Peacock and Jeremy Rose.
