The article about the Improved Radiation Meter (Elektor November 2011 contains a basic description of how the sensor — type BPW34 — has to be shielded from ambient light.

The BPW34, which is suitable for the measurement of gamma radiation, can be completely enclosed; gamma radiation is strong enough to pass through various materials and still be measurable afterwards.
