Title: Coming Soon - To a Universe near you..............
Post by: Big Dipper on February 22, 2011, 10:48:09 am
I see from the March edition of the Sky at Night magazine that Brian Cox's eagerly awaited new series, Wonders of the Universe, begins on BBC2 on Sunday 6 March at 9pm (not sure at the moment if there will be any regional variations to that time).

Check out this link from the BBC website (http://www.bbc.co.uk/tv/comingup/wonders-of-the-universe/) in the meantime & fingers crossed that it will live up to Cox's excellent Wonders of the Solar System series from last year.

I've just posted an entry in our forum calendar (http://astrophotoweather.smfforfree4.com/index.php/topic,3046.new.html#new) (apologies for the moving graphic  ;D) which will show up on our Index/Homepage under the 'Upcoming Calendar' section for a week or so prior to the start of the series. Hopefully that will serve as a useful reminder.  :)

I wish I had .... Dull, dull, dull. What a pity that they couldn't have found a less shallow presenter; I think Michio Kaku would have done a good job of presenting this material (and might have avoided some of the glaring oversimplifications too).
