Brian Cox on BBC 2 tonight

If you happen to live in the UK (or someplace that gets BBC 2), then you should watch Brian Cox on the show “Horizon” tonight at 9:00 p.m. He’s a gifted speaker, and the topic is the nature of time. I live here in the Colonies, so I’ll miss it, but I’m hoping to catch it on the web somehow (I also have a couple of moles in England who send me stuff sometimes, too).

In the meantime, here’s the trailer for the show.

If the music sounds familiar to some of you, it’s from Doctor Who. That already makes me want to see the program. And, of course, some of you might want to see it because Brian has a certain, um, appeal to a lot of folks. I just like the topic, and Brian himself, so I’m looking forward to watching this when I can.

Tip o’ the bowler hat to Gia.
