Hi Neil

to get you started here are a couple of show references relating to the question "why is snot green" and "what are bogies"

http://www.thenakedscientists.com/html/shows/2001.01.14.htm (see about half way down the page - it's a piece by Shibley)

http://www.thenakedscientists.com/html/shows/2003.10.19.htm (on the soundtrack over half way Katie asks smell-expert Peter Brennan what are bogies made from ? !)

Maybe that nasal spray you've been using is up your nose.
